A Star Is Born: The “Good Job, Good Effort” Kid Has Been Identified As 9-Year-Old Jack Meyer

Welp, that didn’t take long!

Good Job Good Effort Miami Heat Fan Is 9-Year-Old Jack Meyer

Dejected and down after a devastating loss Tuesday night, the Miami Heat players slowly trudged down the tunnel toward their locker room.

But one young fan heard on the game broadcast was sincerely trying to pep up LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and the rest of the team.

“Good effort, good job! Good job, good effort!”

The face behind that voice is 9-year-old Jack Meyer.

“I said ‘Good job, good effort’ and Terrel (Harris) noticed me and gave me a thumbs up,” he said.

The video has gone viral, and Jack’s enthusiasm has inspired a twitter account, @goodjobkid, with more than 3,500 followers.

Jack has been a Heat fan since he was 3 or 4. He loves to play ball with his dad, and enjoys collecting the team’s memorabilia in his room. His Heat-themed bed is “super cozy,” he says.

Says the young man about his favorite basketball team:

“LeBron James was fighting so hard, Shane Battier, Udonis Haslem. Chris Bosh only played 14 minutes, yet one of his best games,” he said.

“You can’t give up this easily,” he said. “You know there’s always got to be a second chance for you. You always have the power to win.”

Even if you’re a Heat/Lebron James hater, you gotta admit, that’s some pretty cool isht coming from a 9-year-old.
