Dave has been coaching at Elmont Memorial for the past 24 years in the position of Varsity Football Assistant Coach. Jay Heigi, head varsity football coach, says, “He is a person that puts an incredible amount of time into the program. Dave works hard and wants all the credit to go to the players.”
Coach Kinsley is well liked by his peers and his players. The football players expressed that he is dedicated to them as players on the football field, but also with their academics and with their family lives.
Nicholas Walton, an 11th grade football player said, “He is teacher, big brother, father figure and coach. It always amazes me how many kids come back each year just to say hello, They show up throughout the year during practice.
To me, this shows how many lives that he really touched.” All the staff and students at Elmont Memorial High School celebrated Coach Kinsley’s well-deserved award.
