All of Palo Alto is so proud of you. I have been following your career closely since Paly days and this is like a dream come true. I've still got your Warriors Jersey to wear even if you found greener pastures outside of the area. Thanks for being a great model for me to point to for my boys.

Actually Franco went to Gunn HS. Lin would have gone to Gunn as well but his older brother was on the Gunn basketball team and was treated so poorly by the coach at that time that Jeremy requested a transfer to Paly.

Actually, Franco did NOT go to Gunn.....he was a 1996 Paly grad. Check the yearbook and every story ever written about him, that has a reference to his high school. He even attended a Paly reunion.

Your article mentions that former Palo Alto player David Weaver '93 will be attending the game this weekend. It's also worth noting that he played basketball at Harvard.

Jeremy was born in 1988, the year of dragon. This year he
has the greatest power & luck living it up as a dragon.
May this dragon be a great inspiration & and role-model
to all children with dreams.
