Piedmont Pacers Basketball are mourning the death of one of their player, Chad Dorrill who passed away today September 28 2020. According to reports from the club, The 19-year-0ld Chad Dorrill died due to complications from coronavirus (COVID-19).
The news of Chad Dorrill’s death was shared in an official statement released on the club’s Facebook page.
Excerpts From The Statement Below:-
The Piedmont Pacers family is devastated to learn of the passing of Chad Dorrill, due to complications from COVID-19. This awful disease has taken this young man from everyone far too soon.
Chad was an original member of the Piedmont Pacers and we first met him in 2013 after he and his family moved to North Carolina from Wisconsin. We quickly realized what a talented basketball player he was.
His quiet, soft-spoken demeanour belied a fierce competitor on the basketball court whose relentless hustle and shooting prowess helped win many games for the Pacers. Chad finished as the Pacers’ all-time leading scorer and was a member of the 2018 USSSA National Championship team. Most importantly, Chad was beloved by all of his teammates and coaches and possessed all of the qualities that any parent would love to see in their child. His parents, Robert and Susan, were a constant presence at Pacers games and their kindness and support helped to create a family-like atmosphere. Our hearts go out to them and we cannot imagine the pain they are going through right now.
Susan asked that everyone share the following: “As our family suffers this incredible loss, we want to remind people to wear a mask and quarantine if you test positive even without symptoms, You have no idea who you can come into contact with that the virus affects differently. Chad was just incredibly tired for two weeks and little did we know it was secretly attacking his body in a way they have never seen before. The doctors said that Chad is the rarest 1-10,000,000 case but if it can happen to a super healthy 19-year old boy who doesn’t smoke, vape or do drugs, it can happen to anyone.”
We ask that everyone say a prayer for Chad, Robert, Susan, Cade, Jack and the entire Dorrill family. God bless you Chad. We are all better for having known you.

His kindness and smile are far-reaching. Chad loves basketball, music and all his people.
Let us learn from his example, the importance of showing love and kindness, even when it is not easy to do so. Remember the lessons his mother urges: ear your mask and quarantine if you test positive. Chad is our WHY.

Speak his name and pray for his family, as Chad Dorrill was 1 in 10 million affected by complications from COVID that took his life far too soon. While I didn’t know him personally, my sons did, and it’s apparent by the outpouring of prayers and grief in our community right now that he leaves a legacy of light, love, and life well-lived in only 19 years.
