Beacon Players Plan Summer League

Raising money for refs, uniforms

Now that the Beacon High School boys’ basketball season is over, three senior players — Aaron Davis, William Rivera and Demetrius Galloway — plan to focus on organizing a summer league in Beacon for players ages 16 to 19.

“We’ve noticed the lack of competition in other summer leagues and know we have the potential to bring kids together from all other towns to compete at a high level,” they wrote on an online fundraising page at gofundme.com that so far has raised $900 of its $3,000 goal to pay for court rentals, referees and uniforms.

“We are great friends who’ve been playing basketball for our entire lives,” the players wrote. “We’re very passionate about this sport and more importantly our community and our peers.”
