Al Filan was an outstanding teacher who served Brother Rice High School with pride and dedication for almost forty years.
During that time, he was always devoted to the young men he taught and coached, bringing great passion to all that he did. He was also an exceptional colleague who as a Department Chairman was a leader on our staff, and a mentor to many of our teachers.
Everyone that had him as a teacher reports that he was extremely dedicated to the highest standards and what was best for the kids. This is a man that devoted his life to the students at Brother Rice. This world needs more people like him.
