After closing out the season last night with a tough loss in the NCAA Tournament, I took the time this morning to pick up the phone and call Don Meyer. Needless to say 30 minutes late I was feeling a lot better. It would be hard for me to come up with someone that has impacted our sport more than Coach Meyer. Though his clinics, academies, teaching DVDs, and lectures, he has impacted junior high school, high school, college and professional coaches and players -- men and women. His impact will be one for the ages as so many of us that have learned from him will continue to pass on the lessons he has taught us.
One of the things we talked about is his new website. He completely revamped it and he is really proud of it. There can be no great testament to what Coach Meyer stands for than the banner at the top of his home page: "The purpose of this website is to help develop teachers, coaches, and servant leaders."
The site is full of great information that coaches and players can use -- as well as those who want to improve their families and businesses. There are videos of him speaking on a variety of subjects as well as a link to purchase any of his DVD's or books -- the best in the business.
There are two things about Coach Meyer that standout to me:
First, Coach Meyer is a continual learner -- he has an unquentionable thirst for knowledge.
Second, Coach Meyer is a continual giver -- he deeply believes with great passion that he was put on this earth to teach and to share and mentor.
And for that we should all be thankful!
Please take time to visit his website:
