Don Meyer 1944-2014
11 August 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Although I saw this broadcast on TCT it was not an especially religious film, in fact there's only one scene in it of his athletes praying for him that could any way be called religious.

Don Meyer upon his retirement was the winningest coach in college basketball history although the record was very soon surpassed. He did it the hard way too, insisting on scholastic achievement for his men as well as performance on the court. In the end even he recognized that life is the ultimate challenge and very few of his men would make a living at basketball. But they had to be equipped for life's challenge as well as the game.

The film and Coach Meyer's life is seen through the eyes of his son played here by Casey Bond. Judge Reinhold is Coach Meyer played here as a relentless and hard taskmaster who eschewed salutary greetings in conversation.

The film reminded me in an odd way of The Magnificent Yankee where Oliver Wendell Holmes who was blessed with no children regarded the thirty years of law clerks he had as surrogate sons Judge Reinhold had two children, but his players he regarded as My Many Sons if they stayed the distance.

My Many Sons is a nice tribute to Don Meyer and more than basketball fans will appreciate.
