Brewster will continue football career at Simon Fraser University in Canada

Mount Si defensive end/linebacker will play football at the Division II level.

Mount Si Wildcats 2018 graduate Tank Brewster was one of the most dominant players on the football field and baseball diamond during his high school career.

The high school two-sport star will play football at Division-II Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia in Canada. The campus, which is located 158 miles from Snoqualmie, is a two hour and 45 minute drive from Mount Si High School.

“It definitely has a spot in my heart,” Brewster said of the Snoqualmie/North Bend area. “Where I am going it’s going to be very similar to what it is like here. It is in the Pacific Northwest and has the same weather. That is one of the reasons why I chose (Simon Fraser University). It reminds me a lot of home.”

Brewster said he has been lifting weights on a daily basis and works out twice a week doing field work at Ford Sports Performance in Bellevue. Ford Sports Performance is just a short 25-minute drive from Brewster’s home. Brewster said he will play linebacker and defensive end at the collegiate level.

“It is definitely not an easy spot to play. A lot of people think you just rush forward the whole time but you really got to hold the edge and make sure you are not going too far up field because they (runners) can cut beneath you. You really got to hold your ground,” Brewster explained. “You have to be able to read the quarterback and what the offensive linemen are doing.”

Recently the Snoqualmie Valley Record had an opportunity to ask Brewster a few questions about his life away from the football field.

Snoqualmie Valley Record: What is your favorite movie of all time?

Tank Brewster: It is probably “Step Brothers.” It is one of my favorites. I love that movie.

SVR: If you could pick one person to go to dinner with, who would it be?

TB: It would be Lebron James. I would ask him how he got to where he is at. He is literally one of the most perfect athletes on the planet. He doesn’t have any flaws. It is crazy.

SVR: What is your favorite restaurant in the North Bend/Snoqualmie region?

TB: The Woodman (Lodge). They got a lot of steaks. It is really solid. There is also that new Mexican restaurant in town, The Rio Bravo. I love that place.

SVR: How many text messages do you send per day?

TB: I’m not really a huge texter. I’m bad at responding to people. I would say probably in the 30s.

SVR: What is your dream vacation spot?

TB: I like Southern California a lot. I like going to LA (Los Angeles). I went there one time and I really loved it. The beaches were super fun. I love going there.

SVR: Who was your idol as a kid?

TB: Ken Griffey Jr. is one of them. He is a really good athlete and a really great person that I looked up to. I remember at a baseball game, I was literally in the nosebleeds (upper deck portion of the stadium) screaming his name. I just loved him so much.

SVR: What kind of music are you listening to the most in your car right now?

TB: Probably old school hip-hop. I like that era and listen to Nas and Tupac. That is one of my favorite genres of music.
