Coach Meyer, the Encourager

By May 18, 2014 Story Wall No Comments

As soon as Coach heard I had been diagnosed with prostate cancer he called. Of course he was immediately in “coaching”mode, telling me things I needed to do each day. But most of all he encouraged me. Despite his busy schedule and all of the difficulties he was facing, he called every week. Always deflecting the conversation away from himself, always encouraging, and each time praying the most beautiful, heartfelt prayer with me.
Coach Meyer took a small-town high school coach from Texas under his wing and taught me so many things. He made me a better coach, but more importantly he made me a better man. I will be eternally grateful for the impact he had on my life. Thank you, Coach. I love you.
