Scott Meyer

Photo by Trent Penny/The Anniston Star -- Alabama long snapper Scott Meyer wore an armband in honor of his high school friend Max Gruver during the Crimson Tide's game on Saturday. 

"Fly high Max." 

That was the message written in big, bold letters on the wrist of Alabama long snapper Scott Meyer, according to a report from The Montgomery Advertiser.

The message was for Max Gruver, an LSU freshman who died this week in what is being investigated as a potential hazing incident. Meyer and Gruver both attended Blessed Trinity Catholic School in their hometown of Roswell, Georgia. 

Meyer, a former walk-on, has played the past three games as Alabama's long snapper. 

Gruver, who died after what's being investigated as a hazing incident, aspired to be a sports writer. His grandfather said his favorite team was Clemson. 

An autopsy revealed Gruver had a high amount of alcohol in his body, but a cause of death will not be available for several weeks. Gruver was pledging the Phi Delta Theta fraternity on LSU's campus.
