Brewster is a Gopher Good Guy

Minnesota Golden Gophers head football coach continues to reach out to the community, quickly cementing a personable reputation in the realm of Minnesota collegiate athletics. Some critics of former head coach Glen Mason claimed Mason was a football-genius who “ruled from a tower.” If this criticism of Mason was true, Brewster seems to be out to prove that he is the opposite of running the team from on high. Brewster latest showing of community goodwill included an appearance at the 2007 Minnesota Summer Special Olympics games, where he handed out medals and spoke at the podium. Brewster said he was delighted to see the smiles of the participants. The Minnesota Gophers football team not only has a great football mind to lead them, but a willing community leader and overall nice guy to help sell tickets to the Gophers faithful.
