Helping A Hitchhiker

By | Story Wall | No Comments

My high school team attended a camp put on by Coach Meyer and staff in the summer of 2000, at Northern State. A family member was going to stop over during one of the sessions and watch. On the way, my family member became lost while walking around the campus trying to find the building we were located in.

My family member later told me someone walked up to him and said “Sir, are you looking for a building?”, to which he explained he was looking for the building the campers were in. The person told him which building we were in and then gave him a ride to the building. I asked my family member to describe the person; after he described the person, I told him that was Coach Meyer.

The fact that Coach Meyer was willing to help a stranger by not only pointing him in the right direction but by also giving him a ride in his personal vehicle is really a strong testament to the great person Coach Meyer was both on and off the court!
