The Pittsburg Sun reported Monday night that Dylan Meier, the older brother of former Kansas University wide receiver Kerry Meier, died this weekend after falling from a cliff while hiking with family members in Arkansas.
Dylan Meier, 26, played quarterback at Kansas State from 2002-06. Meier, a Pittsburg High School graduate, slipped while attempting to climb up a rock to get a better view, the paper indicated. Prior to the accident, he was set to travel to Korea to teach English. KMBC-TV reported via Twitter that all members of the Meier family were present except for older brother Shad.
