Coach Brubaker began his coaching career as a junior high football coach in the Solanco School District in Quarryville, PA. Upon landing a job teaching English at Elizabethtown High School in the fall of 1996, he coached special teams, wide receivers, quarterbacks, and coordinated the offense over his three years under head coach, Joe Mack.
His next twelve years of coaching came at Wilson High School in West Lawn, PA under Pennsylvania Hall of Fame Coach, Jim Cantafio, for eight years as the wide receivers coach and special teams coordinator, and Doug Dahms for the next four, as the wide receivers coach and offensive coordinator. At Wilson, Coach Brubaker had the opportunity to coach five Division I wide receivers, including three who were named to the Big 33 game, one who was named to the All-State team, and one who was named to the PSFCA East-West All-Star game. Joining Wilson’s prestigious Century Club by coaching in over 100 wins at Wilson, Coach Brubaker was part of a staff that recorded 114 during those twelve years, winning over eighty percent of their games and averaging over nine wins per season. During that time, Wilson won seven Lancaster-Lebanon League titles and two PIAA District III championships. Wilson won eighty-five percent of their games with Coach Brubaker coordinating the offense. In that time, Wilson’s offense set all-time school marks for rushing yards in a season, passing yards in a season, total yards in a season, total points in a season, average points per game, passing yards per game, scoring differential, and wins, including a 14-1 season in 2008 that ended in a heartbreaking, triple-overtime loss to Bethel Park in the state AAAA semi-finals.
