Gulfport Coaching Great Ronnie Cuevas is using a recent diagnosis to shed light on the need for donors when it comes to kidney transplants.
A 2015 inductee into the Mississippi Association of Coaches Hall of Fame, Cuevas has stage four renal failure and is searching for a donor.
According to a Facebook post made by his family, Cuevas also wants to bring awareness to the need for donors worldwide, citing a waiting list of more than 600 people at the Tulane Medical Center alone.
On a positive note, Cuevas is in good enough overall physical health to accept a transplant rather than go the route of dialysis.
Cuevas is Gulfport’s all-time winningest coach with an overall record of 142-95 across 35 years of coaching with other stops at Harrison Central and Starkville.
