The legend, Brandon Graham, was just called to the principal’s office. Relax, it’s not what you think. The long-tenured defensive end was there to announce the Philadelphia Eagles Fan of the Year for 2022.
On November 10th, 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 Auerbach learned he was named 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 roughly 700 students and a staff of 54 teachers. It’s just 22 miles southwest of Lincoln Financial Field. Auerbach has been an educator for 20 years, nine of them as a principal.
In his office, Principal Auerbach keeps an Eagles poster next to his American flag. He even has the students do an Eagles cheer as part of morning announcements before games.
Auerbach is married with two children of his own. He enjoys going to games with his son Noah as much as he enjoyed going to games with his father as a child. Father and son have traveled to see their favorite team play the Commanders and Giants on the road and are season ticket holders courtesy of Auerbach’s late father.
As part of the award, Auerbach receives tickets to Super Bowl LVII and is eligible to win NFL Fan of the Year. Fans can vote for him on NFL.com where he appears with 31 contestants from other teams.
With things going so well for the Philadelphia Eagles this season, it would be great to see Principal Auerbach named the NFL fan of the year. Eagles fans have always been the best in the league, so please consider giving him your vote.
