AHA benefits from Dorian Dawkins memorial tournament

SAGINAW (WJRT) -

(01/18/14) - Saturday, Mid-Michigan remembered a young athlete who lost his life playing the game that he loved.

In 2009, basketball standout Dorian Dawkins collapsed at a camp in East Lansing. He's the son of Saginaw High's former Basketball coach Lou Dawkins. A tournament has been held every year in his memory and to bring awareness to the disease that took his life.

Saturday was the fifth annual Dorian 'Styles' Dawkins Classic.  All proceeds from the event will go to the American heart association and toward scholarships for student athletes.
