"He just never wants to stop. He doesn't want to leave (the weight room),” coach Justin Merideth said. "He's the heart of this defense this year. He's our rock.”

And defense is what Memorial hangs its hat on. After a rough start last year, the Bulldogs won seven games in a row before losing to Jenks in the state quarterfinals. That run was powered by a stifling defense.

Myers was part of the supporting cast last year as linebacker Adrian Shoecraft and defensive back Nelson Medeiros led the team.

This year he's ready to be the No. 1 guy.

"They taught me about leading by example more than anything,” Myers said. "We thought we would have the success we have, and we don't want it to stop now.”

Myers had 61 tackles and six sacks last season. He has an offer from Air Force, but his summer tour should bring about more attention. In the last week, he's been to Wyoming and Colorado State. He's talked to Montana and still plans to go to Tulsa and Missouri this week.

And then it's over until summer conditioning for the Bulldogs.

"It's going to be great to relax,” Myers said. "This is a real exciting time, though.”
