Coach Chris Brown has been an award-winning basketball coach for more than 25 years.  Coaching high school and club teams in Georgia and Virginia he has served as a teacher, role model and mentor for the thousands of kids whose lives he has touched. Coach Brown started his playing career at Lafayette High School where he was a unanimous 1st Team All-Peninsula selection.  He earned a scholarship to Norfolk State University where his team won the CIAA Conference champions in 1986.  After college, he coached in Atlanta at Pace Academy, and later at St. Francis School.  In 2006 he returned to Virginia and coached first at Walsingham Academy in Williamsburg where he was a part of a State Championship Team.  Later he moved cross-town to Williamsburg Christian Academy.

She is now a college basketball coach

In 2016 Coach Brown returned to WCA as The School Athletic Director and boys basketball head coach.  He took his team to the state semi-finals that year, and won Conference and State Coach of the Year recognition.  The next year his team went all the way, winning the Va State Championship and earning state coach of the year honors for Coach Brown.
