Don Meyer of Northern State University

I saw this the other night on ESPN and was thrilled when I found the entire clip on YouTube. Coach Don Meyer was the recipient of the esteemed Jimmy V award given annually at the ESPYs. Coach Meyer's story of the last 10 months of his life is unimagineable to say the least. Yet he has perservered and bested all other coaches as the winningest coach in college basketball.

Inspired doesn't come close to describing how I felt after watching this. (I've watched twice since!) ;-)

If only men/women like these were the ones we saw regularly in the media as role-models and examples to follow, rather than the trash that's so common on every TV channel and magazine cover.

I hope you enjoy!
