At their meeting on June 19, 2017, City Council honored the memory of Brooksville natives, Jerome Brown and Augustus Brown, who both passed away tragically on June 25, 1992, 25 years ago.   After graduating from Hernando High, where Jerome achieved many athletic awards in three sports, he was a star player with the University of Miami and inducted into their football Hall of Fame.  Being a first round (ninth pick overall) NFL draft pick in 1987, he played for the Philadelphia Eagles.  Jerome Brown was a star player for the Eagles, a beloved teammate and made his hometown Brooksville proud.  The proclamation was presented to Jerome's sister, Cynthia Jackson, surrounded by many friends and family members.
