I saw this post on the free board and thought I would repost it here for our subscriber community.
I’ll start: From age 2-18 I lived in Waldron and moved to Fayetteville for college. Fortunately, I caught on with several in the sports world here and never had to leave, and have lived here for almost as long as I lived in my hometown.
I’m from 1821 Fair Park in Little Rock from third grade through a couple of years in college. House is still there. Also lived in a house until age 2 on Markham that now has a Wendy’s (near WMS). Also lived at 36 Westmont Circle for a few years. Lived about 14 years on Columbia Ave., south of Edison High School in Tulsa. Now, it’s Fayetteville. I think most knew all of that. Won’t be as fun as reading Matt’s background.
