Michael Brewster

Ohio State


Brewster will graduate in December with a degree in communications.


Brewster is a team leader who never lets his emotions get too high or too low. He passed up a chance to enter the NFL draft in order to return for his senior season. He was projected as a first- or early second-round pick. Peers respect him because of the way he plays, treats people and works, both on the field and in the classroom. Brewster’s teammates often seek him out for advice or insight, and he’s always approachable.


This year Brewster has contributed his time and effort to the James Cancer Center and the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. Previously he has helped the LifeCare Alliance, Dublin Baptist Church and read to students at High Point Elementary.


Brewster enters his senior season on the preseason Rimington and Outland Trophy watch lists. Last year he was a Football Writers Association of America first-team All-American and first-team All-Big Ten selection. He anchored an offensive line that helped its unit average 38.7 points per game, which was 11th best in the nation. Brewster enters the year having started 36 straight games, dating back to his freshman season.
