BETHEL, NC (WNCN) – A Super Bowl winner from eastern North Carolina returns to the area as an assistant soccer coach.
North Pitt High School, which is outside of Greenville, announced Wednesday that CJ Wilson will join its staff as assistant soccer coach. Wilson grew up in Beaufort County and played his high school football at Northside High School. He played in East Carolina and won a Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers.
“I am very excited to be part of the North Pitt Football family. I can’t thank the staff enough for this opportunity to share what I’ve learned during my NFL career, “Wilson said in the announcement. “That has always been a passion of mine. My goal is to educate and teach these young men that success begins in the classroom. I look forward to the bright future ahead of us. “
Born in Belhaven, he was a pure conference player and team captain of the Panthers. At the college level, Wilson led the Pirates with four sacks in his first season. He cemented his place at the top of the Defensive End Depth Chart, starting every game in his junior and senior years. He ended his NCAA career with 37 straight starts.
Wilson was selected in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He started in Green Bay’s 31-25 victory over Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLV.
Wilson wavered from 2014 until its release by Chicago in 2017.
