DR. KENNETH POLKE is a native of the Cleveland area. As a youth, he had to choose between joining a life of organized crime or finding his way out of a Mafia-ridden neighborhood through sports. He chose football as his vehicle for conquering his adversities, and that led him to being recruited by the Miami Dolphins and Cleveland Browns. After leaving football, he enjoyed a successful dentristry career. Today, he has returned home to the Cleveland area to give back to his community.
