Meyers Leonard Facts

  1. He was 6 years old when his father passed away.
  2. His mother once suffered a horseback injury whose treatment included a disc surgery that left her with crippling pain. She has been mostly housebound since her husband’s death.
  3. Meyers Leonard gained a surrogate family when he was in 2nd grade and Brian Siler, an insurance agent in Robinson who had a son of the same age, eventually became a father figure.
  4. According to Dana O’Neil of ESPN.com, “Looking to shoehorn the relationship into a convenient box, outsiders have called this Meyers’ version of The Blind Side, but the comparison is inaccurate. The book and subsequent movie tell the story of Michael Oher, a boy who was homeless and didn’t have much of family life. Meyers Leonard has a family. It has not abandoned him. On the contrary, Tracie loves her son, loves him so much that she was willing to accept help.”
  5. In December 2017, his dog Bella died of cancer.
