Devaughn "Dee" Lee
With great sadness, we report that the Central Penn Ballers family lost one of our young brothers the morning of 1/16/11 in a car accident. Devaughn Lee was just 15 years old, but played like a man amongst boys. As an 8th grader last season, he was an integral part of our 14U/8th grade team that placed 15th in the AAU DII National Power Rankings. As a FRESHMAN, he was leading the Manheim Central High School varsity basketball team in scoring. As a FRESHMAN, he was named to the Lancaster-Lebanon League Football Coaches Section 2 All-star team as an honorable mention.
Devaughn played sports with a passion, heart, hunger, grit, and excellence that few ever witness a kid his age play. Devaughn, we know you are looking down on us. We promise to coach, play, and live the best way possible to make you proud of us.
