William H. (Bill) Dorsey

(Class of 1933)

A four-year starter and letterman as a fullback/end – a rarity in that era – he served as team captain of the Purple Riders under Coach John Cox during an 8-1-1 record season in 1932. During his four years on the gridiron, Ferry posted a combined 36-3-4 record.

He was also a four-year letterman in track, setting what was then the school record at 48 feet. He also lettered three years in basketball, serving as captain as a senior, and played one year of baseball.

The uncle of 2018 Hall of Fame inductee Raymond “Bill” Dorsey, he was recruited by and signed with the University of Pittsburgh (1934-35), but transferred to Manhattan College where he started for two seasons (1936-37). He was selected as a College All-American in 1939 and played in the College vs. Pro All-Star Game against the New York Giants.

The 6-2, 200-pounder was drafted by and played end for the Newark Bears of the American Professional Football Association, a “farm team” for the NFL’s Chicago Bears, in 1939.

He became head football coach of Powhatan High School in 1940, leading the team to a 9-0 record and tied the valley/state record as the only unbeaten/untied/unscored upon high school team (the other was Steubenville). He was co-coach in the Ohio-West Virginia All-Star Game (the precursor to the OVAC All-Star Game).

Dorsey then served as a Commander in the U.S. Navy from 1942-56, and later became head football coach at St. John Central (1947-50), posting an 18-19-1 record with his 1950 team going 8-2, and finally as head coach at Linsly Military Institute in Wheeling.

MOBIT: Daelemans, Teresa Marie [MCspouse RIP] of Daelemans, George Lucien [MC???? RIP]


Teresa Marie Daelemans
(1937 – 2019)

Teresa Marie Daelemans, of West River MD, returned to Christ, June 13th, 2019 surrounded by the love of her family. She joins her husband George Lucien Daelemans, who passed in April 2010.

Born April 1st, 1937 in Queens New York, the oldest child to Violet and Joseph Thompson, both first generation immigrants. Raised in the Catholic faith, A lifelong fan of the Brooklyn Dodgers, she graduated from Dominican Commercial Catholic HS. Upon graduation it was her plan to enter the convent until fate intervened and she met George, a recent graduate of Manhattan College, at a Church dance. They married August 10th, 1957.

Terry learned from her parents’ self-determination and resourcefulness. Her, “Don’t tell what I can’t do” attitude, brought her and her young family of 5 children to Maryland, in 1967, where George began his long career with NASA and the space industry. Throughout the 60’s and 70’s she was a devoted, hands-on, stay at home mom. When the time came, she supported the family income working part time at St. Nicholas Rectory in Laurel. After the move to West River, she became an executive secretary at Annapolis Federal S&L.

She was coaxed into early retirement to return to caring for her grandchildren. It was her life’s goal to be a loving wife and mother, taking great pride in shaping the lives of her children and grandchildren. Something she instilled in them all, for which we are very grateful. Her lasting love for her husband and family will be cherished. Through her faith in the Lord, and her family, Teresa was able to navigate the journey of wife and motherhood.

Her journey now over, she rests in peace in the loving embrace of Christ. She is survived by her 5 children, George, Gerard, Gregory, Peg, and Gary, 15 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, and her three younger siblings, Jim, Gerard and Nancy.

Friends and family may call on Sunday June 23rd, 2019 from 4-7 pm at Hardesty Funeral Home, 905 Galesville Rd, Galesville, MD 20765.

COMMENT: Brown, Jim (MC1958) imagines rooftop gardens


Jim commented on ENDNOTE:
Yet physicians in the US are still busily manning the ambulances at the
bottom of the cliff instead of building fences at the top

2019-Jun-15 Flashback Friday: …

Go for it John. Won’t hurt. Shame the Devil. Imagine if all the roofs in NYC grew vegetables . It might give a healthy meal for thousands and the air quality would be much better. I wonder how this project at MC is doing? Jim Brown ‘58

[JR: I remember the single family homes in the Bronx by Alma Mater where everyone had some sort of “victory garden” in the back or on the side.  If all the “liberal” “save the earth” type were serious, there’d be “victory gardens” and solar power roofs everywhere.  I particularly like the photos of the aftermath of their “demonstrations” when it looks like a human pig sty.  And look at LA and SanFran to see what “liberalism” looks like. Argh!]
