Brewer, a native from Las Vegas and a sports management major, has always loved the game of  basketball.

“Basketball is my stress reliever, basketball is what I live for,” Brewer said.

Brewer has also made first team all conference throughout his years playing for the warriors.

“Basketball has affected my life in many positive ways,” Brewer said. “It has helped me get good grades, taught me how to work well with others and it also has provided me with a college education that I am thankful for.”

When asked what he plans to do after college, Brewer said he hopes to continue his basketball career next year by playing oversea’s and in the NBA in the future.

“I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I would like to continue playing until I physically cant anymore,” Bewer said.
