Before he was the most-talked about and celebrated player on the New York Knicks — and before “Linsanity” was a household term — Jeremy Lin was a kid with hoop dreams who played basketball at Palo Alto High School and led his team to statewide victory in 2006. Now, Lin”s former high school is proud of and inspired by Lin’s phenomenal success.

Palo Alto senior guard Alec Wong told Yahoo! News: “He was a great player in high school, but I don’t think anyone could have imagined this. Everyone takes pride in it and is proud that he is from here. … Even a lot of non-athletes.”
