David Katoski



On February 11th, 2013, Duluth unexpectedly lost one of its finest, David Katoski. 

Dave, also known as "David K", was a "Duluthian" through and through. Dave grew up in as an active youth in Duluth where he became a star three sport athlete and team captain at Cathedral High School in football, basketball and baseball. He was also the homecoming king his senior year. Following his graduation from Cathedral, Dave went on to play football at UMD from 1977-1981, and in 1980, he helped the Bulldogs achieve their first undefeated season in school history. It was at that time Dave met Patti -- the love of his life... and the rest is history. The couple had three kids of their own: Katie, Kelly, and Sean. 

Dave is respectfully remembered as one who served others first. He was a huge proponent of youth athletics throughout the city of Duluth. Dave found absolute joy in coaching countless football, basketball, softball, and soccer teams in Duluth and specifically through the programs here at Duluth East High School.  

Most importantly, Dave understood the true purpose of sports. He knew it wasn’t about winning or losing, but more importantly, it was about developing great character and no matter what, always giving your best effort, regardless of the outcome. If Dave was still here with us today, he would tell you all to “Play Hard, Have Fun”. 

Without hesitation, the East Basketball Association is beyond honored to host this event in the Katoski name.
