Jeff Boyd's lifestyle is lively and unique. At 31, he's usually out catching passes or fraternizing with young convicts. A wide receiver for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League, Boyd and a partner operate a Los Angeles home for delinquent youths. In his view, the kids aren't delinquent, they aren't convicts, they aren't criminals--they're unlucky. But they are wards of the court, meaning they have been convicted of something. And so they are in Boyd's charge.
