They went out to visit their mother every weekend, but after a few years they moved. Their father got a new job and they had to move to another city.

Mark said that it was very difficult for him because he had to find new friends and change the elementary school. He also stated that he missed the mother during that period. Their father was very strict and wanted to make very physically fit guys from them. He was their personal trainer and advised them to be always in shape.

After graduation, Mark could play for USC. But after a short time, Mark experienced a very unpleasant experience. He was charged for sexual harassment by a female student at the USC. He was in detention for some time and had to wait for the trial.

His career was questioned and he could not play for the USC College until the trial is over. After the trial, it was proven that Mark was not guilty and he was acquitted of the charges.
