How different was Fallbrook from our previous home in New Bern, North Carolina?
As spring approached, I saw the differences spelled out first hand on the front page of our local newspaper’s sports section. The local high school beat writer ran a full half-page preview of the coming high school swim season, with a note about each of Fallbrook’s returning stars. The last column started with the sentence, “Perhaps the fastest Warrior on this year’s team is freshman Dan Head…”
They were actually hyping my season, and it was insane.
