Kate Hairopoulos has put together a timeline of Gerald Myers’ time at Texas Tech, starting in 1955:
1955: Myers, a native of Borger, Texas, enrolls at Texas Tech. He earns three varsity letters in basketball from 1956-59, becoming the school’s first All-Southwest Conference performer in any sport. His free throw percentage in 1957-58 was .869. He earned his bachelor’s degree in 1959 and his master’s from Tech in 1965. He went on to coach at Lubbock Monterey High School and Houston Baptist.
