Northern State Basketball – Don Meyer ESPN Story

northern state

I was making dinner tonight and had ESPN’s E:60 program on. 

There was a very moving story about Northern State’s head basketball coach, Don Meyer, and the aftermath of his car accident on September 5, 2008.  The accident may have saved his life as doctor’s discovered he had liver cancer while patching him up.  Meyer ended up in the hospital for weeks to repair his broken body – he ended up with a partially amputated leg in the process.

All along it was Meyer’s love of coaching that drove his recovery and his passion to be with his team.  He coached the season from a wheel chair and ended up breaking the record for most wins by any men’s college basketball coach – his record now stands at 910 wins.
