The Other #22
Separate tragedies that took the lives of his father and brother before his eyes as a young boy had a traumatic effect on Hixon's childhood. To make matters worse, as a young teen, he was forced to quit school to help provide for his mother, dashing his dreams of playing high school sports. Hixon's athletic arena was replaced with the overnight shift at Augusta's iconic produce curb market of the 1950s at Fat Man's. As friends enjoyed social events, Hixon's teenage years were framed within earshot of the Richmond Academy football stadium and its roaring crowds.
AGAINST ALL ODDS | THE BOOK
Hixon grew stronger with each barrel of produce he lifted, and fueled by anger and blessed with quick fists, gained the reputation as a street fighter. He eventually ran afoul of the law, before a judge stepped in to hand Hixon a surprise sentence that changed the trajectory of the troubled teen's life.
