Phyllis word can not say the feelings I had when I read about Tater, I had not seen him for a long time, but when ever I read anything about him and sports I would think, "I would love to run into Tater sometime. I can remeber calling him Tater Bug also. As you know I also grew up on Highland, Two houses above where Tater grew up. My heart goes out to you and your famiily, again words can't express how I feel to lose another person I grew up with. I know you have a good family but you will still miss him. My heart goes out to you and your family. Colleen

It's always a sad time when we hear of the death of someone we respected well. I learned today of the passing on Sunday of Adam "Tater" Myers, a coach that was loved and respected by so many in the Winchester/Frederick County community back home in Virginia. I had known Tater, 77, since I was a kid, living not far from his home and playing sports with his sons Timmy and Todd in nearby neighborhood playgrounds or fields. But I really got to know Tater through his coaching at Sherando High School in Stephens City, Virginia. Tater played fast-pitch softball back in the day, and could bring it from the circle. He had been a pitching coach at James Wood High School before he was selected to lead Sherando's softball program when the school opened in the fall of 1993. I was fortunate to cover his teams a good bit in the early years of the program, and it was truly an amazing feat when the Warriors went on a magical ride to capture the Region II title and move to the state AA tournament in the second year of the program in 1995. Tater won area Coach of the Year honors in 1994, '95, and '01 before stepping down after the 2004 season. Tater was one of the guys you couldn't help but like. He always had a smile on his face, possibly a joke to pass on, and always time to talk to you. About anything. I loved interviewing Tater because I knew he spoke from the heart and spoke his mind. Whenever I was out at Sherando, whether covering a sports team or just sitting in the stands and watching the action, chances were I would run into Tater and his wife of 56 years, Phyliss, at the same game. Again, there's was Tater. Smile ready, hand extended, friendly convo to follow. Tater had a long and fruitful life. He served our country well for four years in the 1950s as a Gunners Mate in the Navy, he and his wife raised four children, and I even worked with his son-in-law, Steve Maurer, when Footlocker opened a branch in Winchester in 1982. Steve married Tater's daughter, Tonya, a former cheerleader at James Wood. Tater gave a lot to coaching, whether it was in youth leagues for football and basketball, through soft-pitch and fast-pitch leagues in adult softball, to coaching Sherando's start-up softball programs and also helping out as a long-time assistant coach with Sherando's basketball and golf programs. This was Tater's calling in life, and I imagine there are many former athletes that learned a lot about not only sports but life in general from the man. Tater will be missed. If they're playing softball in heaven, I'm sure Tater has a few tips to offer. RIP, my friend.

We were so saddened by Tater's passing. He had the love and respect of so many. Our fast pitch softball days spent as one big family hold special memories. Our kids grew up together on the bench watching the men play. What great times we shared. Will never forget your having the team to your home to have a steak dinner. What a treat! You both had the gift of hospitality. How many times did the Godfrey VW team bus pass through the tunnel trying to get back to Winchester? We are thinking of you and praying that you will find peace that only our Heavenly Father can give. Blessings to such a great family, Anita & Wendell Dick

Phyllis and Family! My family and I are thinking of you and praying for you. We have such a good God who will put his loving arms around you and guide you during your time of mourning. Tater and I go way back and I enjoyed playing softball for him then being able to talk to him when I came to Sherando for a game. Take care and keep your head to the Sky. Remember, there is nothing wrong with leaving if you have a place to go! Heaven.
