On Sunday morning, Steven Sully was in Portland reading an online article posted by Ben Bartley, who wrote about what Auburn and Auburn football means to him as a recent graduate. The near-term possibilities for the Vols unfolded right on Steve’s iPad in the form of the stunning progress of the Auburn Tigers.
On that same Sunday morning, some 3,000 miles away in Knoxville, Teddy Karwacki read a much different take of the progress of Auburn’s football program over the past few years.
Carlton was one of seven children of the Wilson family. He grew up in Chattanooga when it wasn’t a nice place to be a young black kid. But, it could have been worse, much worse – like it was for his older brothers and sisters. They had most of, and for some, all of their entire childhood colored by the spectrum of segregation. But Carlton was the youngest. He escaped the worst of it due to his age alone. He was the lucky one.
