Your High School Graduating Class: Biggest Screw-Ups
Mine's pretty easy: Marlin Carey. A highly touted running back who made Parade magazine's all national high school team. Out-ran crosstown co-prospect Ricky Williams in the CIF championship on the way to a 4 TD victory. Then he went to Georgia University and, for a lack of motivation, tanked. Two years later he was back home where he and a high school friend took the family of a local bank manager hostage as part of an idiotic robbery scheme that landed him in prison for life.

1. good question
I suppose this can be definitively answered once a high school reunion occurs but there was this one kid who was arrested for armed robbery and cocaine possession when he tried to hold up a 7-11 one block from his house. He did this 3 days before graduation needless to say he didn't walk with the rest of us

2. Don't know what happened to most of my class
a few came online for the 35th reunion, and they seem to have done ok-but eveyone looked sad! Except for one person who had changed both first and last names, converted to Islam, and was shown posing in a tie-dyed tee shirt with significant other, both grinning from ear to ear.... :)

3. Couple of meth lab dudes thrown in the state pen
It's kind of hard to top that on the loser scale.
