Meyers has dealt with adversity and survived whenever life has thrown her a curveball, and on Thursday's SEC-TV, reporter Jenn Hildreth learns firsthand how this Bulldog athlete handles life's difficult experiences. Meyers was first faced with switching from midfielder to goalkeeper when, in the spring of 2003, her roommate and starting goalkeeper, Courtney Hubert, passed away unexpectedly in an automobile accident.
Following this tragedy and her position change, Meyers channeled her energy into becoming the Bulldogs' top netminder (19 starts, 135 saves this year). Another rigorous challenge Meyers stared down came just after the fall semester began, when her family's home in Bay St. Louis was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Hildreth sits down with Meyers and her parents and discovers how this close-knit family rallied the troops to survive nature's devastating blow.
