In 1979, a talented high school senior football player from Idaho by the name of Harry “the Horse” Horseman, was recruited by six professional teams and more than 550 colleges. A. J. Carr, a sportswriter for THE NEWS AND OBSERVER, always had inside information on Harry because Carr had invented Harry.

Even though Carr and Forbes both admitted he was a fictional character, many people continued to say that Harry was real.
