Kevin Dorsey's Bio
Kevin W. Dorsey, who currently resides in Boyds, has a long time history in our town of Poolesville. After graduating from Seneca Valley High School in 1985 he joined the military and served our country in the Army. In 1988 he married Dawn and had three children, all well known to Poolesville. In 2000, Kevin donated his kidney to his mother-in-law without a second thought.
Known for his coaching of Baseball and Wrestling, he also volunteered countless hours designing and renovating the high school baseball field, softball field and the new stadium entrance. Not only did he give his time to Poolesville High School but also to UMAC renovating those baseball fields for all our young players at Taylor Field.
Sammi Jo, Cody and Jessi are proud children of their father who was honored and inducted into the Poolesville High School Athletic Hall Fame this past fall for his dedication to athletics and volunteer efforts to in Poolesville. As a high school wrestling coach, he has built a division champion program. “Through his influence, Kevin has taught hundreds of young men and women to do their very best and to never give up, while inspiring them all to pursue greatness in their life endeavors” wrote Ed Ross, the Athletic Director at PHS for the induction ceremony.
Kevin Dorsey has given countless hours, energy and enthusiasm to our small community, Kevin has been recently been diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. There is no cure for this disease. It attacks the nervous and muscular system killing cells rapidly that ultimately are totally debilitating.
A community member, who wishes to remain anonymous, has pledged to match dollar for dollar any donations made to the family up to $10,000. Humbled by this gracious act, the Dorsey family is deeply thankful your thoughtful contributions.
