Ron Dorsey- Balling from the Land Down Under!

Ron Dorsey Melbourne Tigers

What Up Doe world? Thanks to Torey Thomas for giving me the opportunity to blog on his website, appreciate it bro. Well lets get started with a little intro into the life of Ronald Dorsey. Born and raised on the Eastside of Detroit, MI. Growing up I attended the Pershing High School (Doughboys).

After graduating in 2001 I was blessed to be offered my first basketball scholarship to play 2yrs at Schoolcraft College where I bettered myself as an individual on the court, but most important in the class room as well! In 2003 I moved south to attend McNeese State Univ., a small town by the name of Lake Charles, LA where I decided to spend my last 2yrs as a student-athlete as a Cowboy.

Immediately after graduating from college I went dream-chasing to pursue my DREAM of becoming a professional ball player! So that meant driving 12hrs to Boston from Detroit for a Explorer Camp with my Juco teammate “Dion Sherrell” and his Granny who gave us pep talk the whole way there to get us HYPE and our minds focused on this one in a life time opportunity to play ball overseas! lol Let it be known, with her belief in us, talks with my family back at home and my AMBITION to make it to the next level, it worked for me!! God had sent me my blessing and was driving back home with all smiles the whole 12hrs to Detroit. STAY TUNED to find out more about how I got my first pro contract and the different road it took me to end up playing in Melbourne, AU for the Tigers!
