Receiver Billy Baker, 17, runs through a homemade PVC frame during the first day of practice at the Young Men’s Leadership Academy in east Fort Worth on Monday. This will be the first year for the all-boys school to play varsity football. The school has very little in terms of equipment and facilities and practices on a poorly maintained field with no lines or goal posts. Much of its equipment is hand-me-downs from other Fort Worth high schools.
