Halfbackers? Surely this has something to do with football, was what I thought when Brett Higgs, whose wife Lynn is office manager at Agracel, told me about a recent trip to Eastern TN, “We were in a rapidly growing town east of Knoxville that is filling up with halfbackers. Halfbackers are people from the upper Midwest that moved to Florida but got fed up with the hurricanes, heat and congestion and decided to move halfway back home.”
I’m guessing that many of these people are still very active. Some are probably running or starting new businesses. A strategy for some towns might be to target these halfbackers to move to their town.
