Coach, Mentor, Friend

My experience with Coach Meyer has spanned 20 years. He spoke at our clinic at Valpo every other year. He also did the clinic every spring. One year I picked him up in Fort Wayne and we drove to Upland. Coach gave a whole new perspective to the flat farmland. He went on and on about the beauty. It wasn’t until I went to visit him in Aberdeen that I better understood his perspective. He taught me so much. On the day I was fired after 18 years at a school he was one of the first to call. The day I got hired he called. I am still amazed at how many people he touched. At one of our recent encounters he showed me his prayer list. I was simply amazed by the number of people he was systematically praying for. He was so much more than a basketball coach. He cared, he really cared! This past fall he came to Wright State to speak at our clinic. He shared with our players. Today I got several texts from our players saying how much his interaction with them impacted them. Because he cared he touched lives.

Thank you Coach.
