Eagles D-line coach Chris Wilson finally reaches the mountain top

Chris Wilson, who can easily be defined as a football lifer, never won at any level prior to 2017, going back to his days as a high school star at Richardson High (TX), to playing for the Oklahoma Sooners from 1988-91, and including 25 years of coaching — until now with the Eagles.

Aaron Altherr remembered. It’s not like the Phillies’ outfielder was trying to, though.
