OCHS athlete on the road to recovery after serious injury

CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE – It was a cold October day for fall soccer at Ocean City High School. It was an intense game of rivals: Saint Augustine Prep High School against Ocean City High School.

The ball was down the defensive end of Ocean City. Georgie Meyers was a fullback going full force for the ball in the air and, at the same time, a player from Saint Augustine was coming at him with the same intensity. Meyers got to the ball first and, as he followed through, he was kicked by the Saint Augustine player thinking he was kicking the soccer ball. The contact was like an explosion. It was a loud crack followed by a hurtful scream of agony. The crowd was in awe and knew right away that something was broken.
