LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- A big honor is coming to Central High School in Louisville.
JCPS tweeted, the cleats worn by Pittsburgh Steelers Antonio Brown, in memory of the Greatest are now headed to Central's Athletic Department.
The NFL on Oct. 9 asked Brown to remove the cleats during the Steelers’ game against the Jets.
Ali's alma mater tried to win Brown over with the promise the shoes would be in a good home and not soon after, Brown replied, saying, it "Would be an honor! So much respect for The Greatest!! I need to clean them up..."
