“Is this Duncan Krier? Alex Mack just told everyone at the Super Bowl that you were the best high school player he had ever seen.”
There was a prolonged silence. “Yeah, I’m that Duncan Krier,” the voice said. “But don’t lie to me, man.”
He said he had not spoken to Mack in a dozen years. He said the observation was striking him like a bolt from another life.
“That’s wild. That’s insane. Holy hell,” he said. “Alex really said that about me?”
There was another long silence.
“The crazy thing about it is, I think he’s probably right,” Krier said. “And I still think about that almost every day.”
