The legend, Brandon Graham, has just been called to the principal’s office. Relax, it’s not what you think. The longtime defensive end was there to announce the Philadelphia Eagles Fan of the Year for 2022.
On November 10, Matt Auerbach, principal of Mount Pleasant Elementary School was reading the morning announcements when he was interrupted by a video call from Graham. It was then that Auerbach learned that he was appointed the Philadelphia Eagles Fan of the Year and that he would represent the Eagles in this year’s NFL Fan of the Year contest.
Here’s what you need to know about the Philadelphia Eagles Fan of the Year for 2022.
Mount Pleasant Elementary is a small school in Wilmington, Delaware. It has approximately 700 students and a staff of 54 teachers. It is just 22 miles southwest of Lincoln Financial Field. Auerbach has been an educator for 20 years, nine of them as principal.
In his office, Principal Auerbach keeps an Eagles poster next to his American flag. He even has students do an Eagles cheer as part of the morning announcements before games.
Auerbach is married with two children. He loves going to games with his son Noah as much as he loved going to games with his dad as a kid. Both father and son have traveled to see their favorite team take on the Commanders and Giants on the road and are season ticket holders thanks to Auerbach’s late father.
