Chiefs Assistant Coach Anthony Pleasant Has Complex Named After Him

In what is a rarity these days concerning the NFL, a nice, heartwarming story has come out of the Pensacola, Florida area about a sporting complex with a special name attached: Anthony Pleasant. The longtime NFL defensive end and current Chiefs assistant coach had a sporting complex in his hometown of Century, Florida named after him -- a tribute to the player and person that he's been for so many seasons in the public eye.

"I never imagined that I would be playing for 14 seasons in the National Football League," Pleasant said. "The average career is about three or four years. Those first three years, you can’t control what happens to you. So because of the hard work that I had instilled in me as a kid — that strong foundation — that helped carry me to the next level and to be able to play for 14 years."
