Each year, we present two significant awards to basketball players that went above and beyond, both on and off the court. We are so proud of the hard work that players put into each season, as they work hard to develop their character, skills, and sportsmanship. Congratulations to these exemplary players. We look forward to our 2022 season!
Aaron Lee Simpson, Jr. Heart Award
Aaron had a passion for sports. He was exceptional in everything he put his heart and mind into. When entering a room, he was sure to put a smile on everyone’s face. Aaron was a respectful and outgoing young man with lots of love for his family and friends. Each year, we recognize players who carry Aaron’s love of the game, loyalty, and kindness.

Tyrone Richardson Award
Tyrone Richardson was a lifelong West Chester resident. He was a lifetime supporter of the Melton Center. As a young man, Tyrone could often be found in the gym playing basketball with his friends or enjoying the Center’s pool. As he grew up, he actively recruited staff, volunteers, and opportunities for the Center. He was never far away, and no task was too much to ask. Each year, we honor his memory by presenting this award to a player who is dedicated, a team player, and willing to lend a hand.
