Gilbert L. “Whip” Wilson is a well-established public figure in Camden, having entered the city’s political arena after a 26-year law enforcement career.
His younger brother, Carlton “Muscles” Wilson also has made a considerable impact on their community, having tutored countless youth as a longtime basketball and football coach. For years, Whip Wilson says, Muscles has been an “unsung hero.”
That’s no longer the case.
KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy honored the Wilson brothers on Wednesday by dedicating a new facility in their names – the Gilbert L. and Carlton E. Wilson Gymnasium. But Muscles was unable to attend, having fallen ill.
