Al Keglovits – Al Keglovits was a father, a husband, a teacher, a coach, a bartender, a comedian, a New York Yankees fan, a golfer, and a friend to all who knew him. Fighting Cancer, seeing how he fought it was an inspiration to all of us. Al Keglovits was one of those guys who had a dynamic personality. Kids, colleagues and all opponents were drawn towards his magnetic charm…Al drew you closer to him. He knew he had a fight on his hands when he was diagnosed with cancer. He fought it right up to the end. He never, never quit. Unfortunately he couldn’t rally one more time. What is important is what the Man, Al Keglovits, did with his life. The example set was one of courage. He loved his Family, he loved his Friends and he loved Basketball. Coaching and teaching were instinctive for Keglovits. He will be remembered by all his players, friends, those he toasted life to. Coach Keglovits will always be remembered for his tremendous ever-so-dry sense of humor. He was one of those guys you always wanted to be around. Al made you feel comfortable but watch out for the next zinger, it was probably going to be aimed at you. Among all of his positive traits, Al Keglovits will be most remembered for his battling the cancer that took him away from his family, his friends, his basketball team and us all.
Arthur Perryman – Artie was a son and brother who was loyal and passionate toward his family and friends. Basketball was the passion shared by all in his family but it was Artie who enjoyed it most. His love for the game was obvious to all; however, it was the glue to the friendships he made among his teammates. He was a great teammate, willing to sacrifice his own individual accolades for the betterment of the team. He accrued four basketball letters over his career also earning the Most Valuable Player awards during 1992, 1993 and 1994. In 1994, Artie led his team to a District 11 AAAA title along with two wins in the PIAA state playoffs, scoring 30 points vs. Reading, 33 vs. Coatesville and 22 vs. eventual State Champion Chester. Sportswriters and coaches statewide rewarded him, with his being named to the Third Team “Big School” All-State Team in 1994. Sadly, Artie succumbed to cancer at the tender age of 19. He will be remembered most for his competitive nature, his infectious sense of humor and his ability to make people smile.
