Pumped Up for the Football Game
Alex was heading to the locker room all by himself. It was the night before the first game of the season and he had just finished football practice. He had hung back on the field after his teammates, flirting with a group of cheerleaders. When he finally headed to the showers the rest of the team had changed and left for home.
Alex was no doubt the top jock on the squad. Short in stature, a deficiency that he more than compensated for by his big muscles, the jock liked to say there was no way he was going to make himself taller so he bout as well be wider. Captain of the team, Alex and his crew ruled the school and everyone in it. If Alex liked you life could be good but if Alex didnt, he could make your life hell.
The team manager and water boy was a tall skinny freshman named Derek; the stud wouldn't give the time of day to. Derek envied any guy who got close to him.
