Retired Eagles Players Make South Jersey Their Home

Trent Cole

He played for 10 seasons as defensive end with our beloved Eagles.  But when he was done practicing or playing in a game, he couldn't wait to cross the Walt Whitman Bridge into South Jersey to engage in what he loves most...and that is "hunting".  As an outdoorsman, Trent feels South Jersey was the perfect place to live.  He currently lives in Mullica Hill located in Gloucester County.

 

Jason Avant

He played 8 seasons with the Eagles, but his career took him to Kansas City before he retired.  However, he always kept his home in South Jersey and returned to it upon retirement.  He feels that the suburban feel of South Jersey is a great place to raise a family.  In 2015, he opened a trampoline park located in Deptford, of which is in Gloucester County.

 

Ike Reese

On many occasions, fans see him at the convenience store, look and him and feel he looks familiar.  As a radio announcer, South Jersey residents recognize Ike when he speaks with them.  He currently lives in Clarksboro, located in Gloucester County.
