Two-time Super Bowl champion Anthony Pleasant will be in Century Saturday night as the town dedicates the sports facility that bears his name.
The Anthony Pleasant Sports Complex will be dedicated at 6 p.m. The celebration will include free hot dogs and soft drinks.
The 22 -acre park was named after Century native Pleasant (pictured), a former pro football player selected in the third round of the 1990 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns. During his 14 year NFL career, Pleasant played for the Browns, the Baltimore Ravens, the Atlanta Falcons, the New York Jets, the San Francisco 49ers and the New England Patriots. He played a total of 202 NFL games and racked up 58 sacks and two interceptions and a defensive end.
The 1986 Century High School graduate earned two Super Bowl rings with the New England Patriots.
Pleasant is currently the defensive line coach for the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs.
