A nine-year career as an NFL lineman prepared Gosder Cherilus for the competitive world of Greater Boston’s commercial real estate industry. A native of Haiti whose family moved to Somerville in his teens, Cherilus played at Somerville High School and Boston College before going pro. Retiring this spring after eight knee surgeries, Cherilus had a career to fall back on at Eagle Development Partners, a Stoneham-based real estate company where he’s been a managing partner since 2010. Eagle Development is providing construction management oversight for the mixed-use Woburn Landing development and partnering with the Arcand family on a 40-unit apartment complex at 446 Cambridge St. in Allston.
