The Philadelphia Eagles selected Melik Brown from Eastside High School in Camden as their Coach of the Week earlier in this year’s football season. Brown played defensive back when he attended Eastside (formerly Woodrow Wilson High School) and was a 4-year starter at the University of North Carolina. He also played with the Philadelphia Soul from 2011-2013. Brown joined the coaching staff at Eastside in 2018 and became head coach last year. 

He also serves as the Dean of Climate and Culture at the school.

With the honor, Eastside will receive a $2,000 grant, and Brown will be entered as a candidate for the Eagles’ High School Coach of the Year.
