John Meyer still remembers the day his dad, who is also named John, suggested to him in sixth grade to try out for the track and field team at Richland Jr. High in Crest Hill. “My dad said, ‘why don’t you go out for track and try shot and discus?’” Meyer recalled. “I did, but I didn’t expect anything out of it.”
