Farewell, My Friend

I lost a friend this morning. A.W. Dorsey passed away. And Peach County High lost one if its foremost and truest supporters. A.W. covered Peach County High's sports teams for the Leader Tribune. I had been around him for years. Our paths often crossed as I covered events for the Telegraph, he was there doing his thing. Always brought a smile when I saw him on the sidelines.  When I joined the Leader Tribune I was blessed to work with him. 

A.W. loved what he did, sure didn't do it for the money. He covered all the home events from the various sports, and most of the ways ones as well. The folks he worked for never fully appreciated what he did. A lot of local athletes got some ink because of A.W. He was the embodiment of community journalism.

I know it hurt him not being on the Peach County sidelines this year. Me and a lot of other folks missed him. Every home game he was asked about. Most of the information coming through his co-worker Victor Kulkosky. 

Farewell, my friend.
