Not sure what to say?

Coach Brown, there is a team that awaits you. Remember, Basketball doesn't build character it reveals it.

Bob Brown made an impact on life and we were all lucky to have known or played for him. Eldorado was fortunate to have had Coach Brown during the glory years of Eagle basketball. We had so many great players but that success was also reflective of a great teacher and coach. He was capable of being a major college coach but chose to stay in Southern Illinois and coach at the high school level. We were all blessed by that decision. He was truly one of the premier high school coaches we've ever...

I went to high school with Bob & always considered him a friend. I was at Herrin near the floor of the gym the night he scored 52 points against Herrin & set the school scoring record. I would from time to time remind Bob of it. Always modest he would smile & say "That was a long time ago", Sam. RIP my friend.

Our sincerest condolences for your loss. There will be a darkness, were a brilliant light once shined.

Coach Brown, there is a team that awaits you. Remember, Basketball doesn't build character it reveals it.
