Being named head coach of a high school football team before his 28th birthday wasn’t on Stephen Meyers’ to-do list.
It just turned out that way.
Meyers, 27, was hired earlier this year by Rodriguez High to replace Greg Sutter, whose teams were 5-15 on the field during his two years as coach, though three victories in 2016 were forfeited because the Mustangs played an ineligible player.
“I can’t say I thought I’d be a head coach at 27,” said Meyers, who was an assistant coach under Berwyn Hutcherson in 2014. “The opportunity presented itself and I couldn’t pass it up.”
