Kevin Deans

Head Coach

 

Background:

Coach Kevin was born and raised in the Hudson Valley, about 50 minutes North of New York City. The area was a hotbed for many ball players producing many MLB players. Needless to say, Kevin was thrown into baseball at a young age. Throughout school, Kevin played baseball and basketball competitively. He made a state champion team’s varsity program (Cornwall HS, NY) as a freshman pitching and playing first base. His sophomore season he decided to go to a private school in New Market, VA called Shenandoah Valley Academy where he played basketball for 3 years and started to
get into music as well. Upon graduation he decided to attend Washington Adventist University in the DC area on baseball scholarship. Due to some unforeseen circumstances Kevin left the college after the summer in the middle of the first semester. Shortly thereafter, he was in a bad car accident in which he broke his back and leg. Although Kevin was blessed by a full recovery months later, he had decided to
move on from his baseball career and was then inspired by business and music.

 

He then attended Andrews University in Michigan, where he studied business and played music. While a student he started his own business of managing music artists and also became a hired musician in the Chicago area. In 2005 he was re-acquainted with a woman he dated his freshman year of college and they decided to marry and move back to the DC area. He decided to move on from his music business and go a more traditional finance route. He joined Ameriprise Financial as a Financial Advisor to work
with more conventional individuals on their financial goals. In 2015 he and his financial team at Ameriprise decided to venture out on their own and started a private practice. KFA Private wealth group.

Kevin still sings, plays guitar, bass and drums at contemporary churches in the area. He has a passion for music, helping people work towards their financial goals and of course his first love, baseball. He is very excited to work with the kids on Cavalry and help them find their potential as a ball player and also as ball players with good values and life skills they can use whether or not they continue to play baseball in
