Hernando High School has started the Jerome Brown Project. The project is to raise $1.4 million dollars to put an artificial surface on the football field that will be named after Jerome Brown, place a statue of the former Leopard great at the field and upgrade the weight room that is named after him. Jerome Brown was a Parade All-American for the Leopards as well as an All-American at Miami, first round draft pick of the Philadelphia Eagles and a Pro Bowl player for the Eagles.
Jerome and his nephew tragically died in an automobile accident in 1992. He was 27 years old and his nephew was 12.
The venue for football and soccer games will then be Jerome Brown Field at Tom Fisher Stadium. There is currently a vote for what style field it should be. Below is the link for the first round of voting. We will select a final four and have a revealing in June for the winning field.
