Brewer is 'feeling great'

After suffering a shoulder injury early this season, Austin (Texas) Lake Travis quarterback Michael Brewer returned to action two weeks ago. After two wins, and no lingering problems from the injury, the 2011 Texas Tech commit is looking forward to the remainder of the season.

"I came back two weeks ago and we got a win, then had another big game against (Cedar Park, Texas) Vista Ridge which ended 42-0 in our favor. It was a great win for us and was one of those days where the offense and defense was just clicking on all cylinders. It was a lot of fun to be back out there and to be a part of such a good day for our team."

"My shoulder is feeling great and I'm not having any problems with it at all. I've been able to throw the ball like I want and also take the hits I'm going to have to take, so it's been nothing but positive so far," he said. "I'm just glad to be back and able to focus on the rest of our schedule now. The time flies by and there aren't a lot of games left for me to play here. I'm going to focus on enjoying the time I have left and hopefully getting a lot of wins from it."

Brewer is still tentatively planning a trip to Lubbock for the next Red Raider home game against Missouri. If successful, the trip would serve as the first visit to Lubbock by Brewer's entire family, something that's important to the 6-foot-1, 175-pound standout.

"I'm planning on coming up for the Missouri game. It's still not a done deal, but I would like to get to one more before the end of this semester," he said. "I want to get the entire family up there since we haven't all gotten to go yet. I'd like to get that done before I move there for good."

Brewer will be an early enrollee in the Spring, and he's hoping the extra time with the team will pay off for him in the future.

"I'll be graduating early for sure. I've gotten all of the academic stuff out of the way so I can graduate this semester. I'll be there in Lubbock for the next semester and to go through spring camp. I'm excited to get going and into the everyday routine of the program. I think the added preparation will definitely be an advantage for me down the road."

Brewer committed to Texas Tech in March over offers from Arizona State, Auburn, Baylor, Clemson, East Carolina, Kansas, Rice, Tennessee, Texas, and Tulsa.
