The Brookfield Central Stadium will be renamed to the Harrison - Thomas Stadium in honor of two distinguished alumni athletes who have continued to contribute their skills and expertise to Brookfield Central post-graduation. Kenny Harrison (Class of 1983) competed in the 1996 Summer Olympic games in Atlanta where he brought home the Gold medal in the triple jump, and still holds school records in the long, high and triple jump. Joe Thomas (Class of 2003) is a former Pro Bowl offensive lineman with the NFL's Cleveland Browns and is regarded as one of the best offensive linemen and left tackles in the NFL's history.
The Elmbrook Board of Education approved the naming of the stadium at their regular meeting on August 11.
