Competition

Brewster, a starting defenseman in his freshman, sophomore and junior years, anchors a defense that has gone from the 52nd scoring defense in the nation in 2016 to the No. 1 scoring defense in the nation in 2018. Throughout that statistical period Brewster led the close defense in ground balls and caused turnovers and consistently marked the opposing teams top offensive threat. Brewster was named to the All-America East Second Team in 2017 and 2018 and the All-America East All-Conference team in 2017.
