By the time he was eighteen he had destroyed an otherwise decent GPA and had drained his entire college fund. Thatís why he had to declare for the draft out of high school. He was supposed to go to Texas A&M, but they caught wind of a problem and rescinded his scholarship. Thatís how his parents found out. Dave was kicked out of college before he ever went in. Dave Guevara was addicted to crack cocaine.
