Playing of the Annual Hoosier Basketball Association's 2011 East/West All-Star games on April 17, at Tecumseh High School, provided the site and time for former Jac-Cen-Del Lady Eagle basketball coach Maurice Meyers to be presented the HBCA's Distinguished Service Award.
The award is presented to a member of the basketball community for distinguished service toward the advancement of the sport. Coach Meyers was girls' coach at Lawrenceburg and at Jac-Cen-Del High Schools for over two decades.
Meyers is a member of the Ripley Basketball Hall of Fame.
Upon retirement from the varsity level, he returned to coaching at the JV and Jr, High, as well as being a varsity assistant at Milan and JCD.
Recently, Meyers has came out of a second retirement to assist in the rebuilding of the Milan Lady Indian basketball program as a volunteer assistant.
Never far from the sport, Meyers has spent his retirement years scouting for boys and girls HS teams, offering basketball advice to coaches and occasionally judging track meets.
As was stated, "Basketball has no greater friend in Ripley County and he is truly deserving of this award."
He and wife Pat reside in Osgood.
Coach Meyers!
