"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.
