Career
Inducted into the North Texas Athletics Hall of Fame in 2015 ... Considered the best offensive lineman from the Mean Green’s four Sun Belt championship teams, Brewster was the anchor of a line that enabled a stable of running backs set school and Sun Belt records. Although highly-rated coming out of high school, Brewster was under-sized at 230 pounds. By his senior year, Brewster was 6-2, 275, and a fixture on the offensive line. He was a starter for four years, including 50 consecutive games. Brewster helped pave the way for Kevin Galbreath to become the first back in school history to rush for 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons, and for Patrick Cobbs and Jamario Thomas to top the nation in rushing in back-to-back seasons. With Brewster at center, the Mean Green won four-straight Sun Belt titles and made four-straight appearances in the New Orleans Bowl, Brewster was twice named to the Sun Belt All-Conference team.
