I first encountered Coach Meyer as a Lipscomb student, decades ago. Not only was a he a great teacher — interesting, witty, funny — it quickly became apparent that he walked the walk. I followed his coaching career, and as the years passed, and I became a wife and mother of sons, we sent our sons to Coach Meyer’s basketball camps every year. Our boys loved these camps, and came home each year with notebooks. In those notebooks were the expected basketball lessons and plays, but more importantly, there were words of wisdom on how to live life. More than anyone else, Coach Meyer shared, by example and teachings, how to live for God. He was more interested in the souls of the kids he encountered than in winning the game. Because of that — he is the winning-est coach we know. He has fought the good fight, won the race, and I know there is great tournament-style celebration in heaven. Our prayers are with his family as they miss him.
