Myers' great coaching II

I echo Coach Kenny Rhodes' reflection on basketball coaching great Tom Myers, who has been ill (“Myers' great coaching,” Jan. 23).

I spent my time with “Coach” when I coached his eighth- and ninth-grade basketball teams at Highlands. I learned more about the game from him than from anyone else with whom I coached.

Besides coaching the junior high teams, Tom put me in charge of scouting.

Tom loved the game 24/7. There was no resting with that man.

He spent endless hours attending coaching clinics and watching basketball games at all levels. I'm sure he got the most out of his players.

I will always cherish those times I had with Coach Myers.
