NEW ORLEANS — St. Charles Parish Parks and Recreation Assistant Director Robert Brown was named the Under Armor Junior NBA Coach of the Year for Louisiana at the Feb. 23 New Orleans Pelicans game.

“I’ve watched Robert coach and mentor young kids for a number of years and have seen these kids go on to play professional sports, complete college and be productive citizens because of his influence,” St. Charles Parish President Larry Cochran said.

Brown has served as the assistant director of the parish’s recreation department for 23 years and has volunteered as a coach in their programs for nearly 40 years.

The Junior NBA Committee voted him to receive this award. Brown will now compete to be the National Junior NBA Coach of the year.
