What A Caring, Giving Coach – Nobody Better

By May 18, 2014 Story Wall No Comments

As an assistant coach with Terry Smith at Lake Superior State many years ago, we decided we wanted to offer the coaches in the Eastern Upper Peninsula a first-class coaching clinic. We wondered what it would take to get Coach Meyer to travel all the way to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan to headline our clinic. If you have ever been there, you know it is not exactly “on the way” to many places (other than Canada!). Well all it took was a phone call and a request and the availability on his calendar. All he asked for was travel money to get to campus. What an incredible clinic he provided to all of the coaches who attended back in the early 90’s. His selfless and caring heart and incredible desire to help EVERYONE in our coaching profession is something I will NEVER forget. I know I speak for everyone who has ever had the opportunity to learn from Coach Meyer – We will be forever grateful!!! Rest in Peace.
