I was lucky enough to know Coach from 1988 when I started working his camps. I still do so many of his drills, in bounds plays, etc. I was also honored to have two of my high school players sign and graduate from Lipscomb. (I still love to brag that Rico and Thomas played for Coach Meyer.)
My favorite time at camp was 1994, when my nine-year-old son went to his first camp. I didn’t have much money so I asked Coach if we could stay in an empty dorm room together. No way. The next thing I know we are at his house for the week. His wife cooked for us, washed our sweaty clothes at night, and made my son a birthday cake on his ninth birthday.
Great memories. Thanks Coach and Mrs. Meyer.
