My favorite memory: Falcons running back Michael Turner

Long before he began running over defenders in the NFL, Falcons running back Michael Turner did all he could to turn his high school team into a winner. It took some time. His North Chicago High team struggled, providing one of Turner’s favorite memories:

“It was Homecoming my junior year. We had the state’s longest losing streak at the time. We finally broke the streak. We finally won a game. That was my first high school victory. I had to wait until my junior year, near the end of the year to get it. That’s my greatest memory. I had like 80 yards. I don’t know if I scored once or twice. We beat Warren High.”
