| July 23, 2010

BUCKS COUNTY, Pa. — Phil Cooper, president of Cooper Pest Solutions and BedBug Central has been selected by the Philadelphia Eagles NFL franchise to appear on the team’s season tickets. It was also recently announced at an Eagles press conference that Cooper will be immortalized in the franchise’s 2010-2011 team year book.

Cooper has been a die-hard fan and supporter of the birds for decades and has proudly displayed their colors thought the franchise’s ups and downs. For his unabashed loyalty, the team has decided to make Cooper a permanent fixture of Eagles’ lore.

Cooper received confirmation in May that a photograph of him decked out in Eagles regalia and war paint would appear on the Sept. 2 pre-season tickets for a game against the New York Jets. But the real honor for Cooper was announced during a the Eagles 2010 Season Ticket Unveiling Press Conference held July 22 at the team NovaCare Complex.

During the press conference, Chief Marketing Officer, Tim McDermott, revealed that Cooper’s likeness would be featured on the cover franchise’s annual year book. McDermott applauded Cooper for his long time loyalty to the team.

“Fans like Phil Cooper are the reason we made the 2010 season the year of the fans,” said McDermott. “One look at his face on game-day and you can see the passion that he brings to stadium and the loyalty that makes the Eagles franchise so special.” 

Cooper will also be invited on to the Lincoln Financial Field on Sept. 2 game-day to lead the Eagles pep band in the singing of “Fly Eagle Fly” team anthem in addition to participating in season-long media initiatives. As a long-time Eagles fan, Cooper’s excitement was palpable during the unveiling of the franchise yearbook with his image.

“This is an amazing honor, I am as passionate about the Eagles as I am passionate about killing bugs,” said Cooper. “When you bring a level of passion and excitement to anything you do, people take notice and it feels great to be recognized for it.”

This isn’t the first time Cooper’s passion for the Eagles has drawn attention. In 2009 Cooper Pest Solutions was featured on CBS 3 for the intense inter-office rivalry between employees that are Eagles fans and employees that are Giants fans.

The Cooper Pest Solutions office even has a 30 inch by 25 inch photograph, NFL licensed photo of Cooper in Eagles face paint hanging above a 14-inch Eagles plaque.  When it comes to his passion for the Eagles, Cooper’s message is simple: “GO BIRDS!”
