2021 PROGRAM BOOK

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR HONOREES!

Dinsmore Award presented to Kevin Kelly

Kevin Kelly has been a high school basketball coach in the Philadelphia area for the past 26 years. Currently, he is the head boys’ basketball coach at Ridley High School. Previously he coached in the Philadelphia Catholic league, the Ches-Month league and Del-Val league, where he won 2 Del-Val league championships.

Kevin was diagnosed with CML (leukemia) in 1998. He was Philadelphia chromosome positive and underwent a bone marrow transplant at Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania under the medical supervision of Dr. David Porter. Kevin’s brother donated the marrow that saved his life.

He relapsed in 2006 and continues to receive maintenance treatment once a month. Part of his treatment regimen includes Gleevec. The American Cancer Society provided funding to help scientists develop Gleevec, the first anti-cancer drug to target CML. 

Kevin lives in southern Chester County with his wife Tishi and their three children. He has participated in Coaches vs Cancer events and tournaments in the past and has raised thousands of dollars to support cancer research through charity bike rides.

We’re thrilled to be honoring Kevin’s survivorship and his commitment to the Philadelphia basketball community by presenting him with the Dinsmore Award!

Speedy Morris Service Award presented to Greg Alessandroni

Greg Alessandroni has been coaching basketball in the Philadelphia area for the past 18 years.  He spent 6 years as an Assistant Women's Coach at Gwynedd Mercy University, capping off his time with a Conference Championship and NCAA tournament berth.  He also worked closely with Howard Brown and iBall United as Director of Scouting & Coaching - helping players realize their dream of playing professionally overseas.

 

In 2010, Alessandroni started All About ATTITUDE, LLC ~ A3 Hoops which provides personalized individual and group instruction, camps and clinics for players of all ages and skill levels. The goal of A3 Hoops is to develop well rounded, high basketball IQ players – with a primary focus on basketball fundamentals.

 

Greg prides himself on volunteerism and giving back to the community.  After joining Coaches vs. Cancer as a volunteer 10 years ago, Greg decided he wanted to do more and provide his student athletes a vehicle to give back.  In May of 2019, Greg hosted his 5th Annual “Shoot the Lights Out on Cancer” event. A3 Hoops has raised more than $58,000 over the past 5 years to benefit the American Cancer Society Philly Coaches vs. Cancer program. In October 2016, Greg received the Volunteer Achievement Award from the American Cancer Society.

 

Greg Alessandroni lives in Montgomery County, Pa. with his wife, Kathy and daughters Juliana (22) and Gabriella (19).  We’re excited to be honoring Greg with the Speedy Morris Service Award for his commitment to Philadelphia basketball and Coaches vs. Cancer!
