Brewster, who graduated in December 2011 with his degree in strategic communications, is one of the finest centers to ever suit up for the Scarlet and Gray. He has also been a strong leader of this program, one who was always willing to speak on behalf of his team. A 2010 All-American and first-team all-Big Ten Conference performer, Mike is a four-year starter for the Buckeyes. He was named (with Mike Adams) as the team's 2011 Jim Parker Award winner as the team's outstanding offensive lineman. He was also one of four team captains as voted on by the players. He capped his Buckeye career in the TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl by making his 49th consecutive start, the second-longest streak in school history (Luke Fickell started 50 consecutive games). Mike was named a game captain a team-high eight times this past season, including in six of the last seven games. He was named to the Rimington and Outland Trophy watch lists at the beginning of his senior season. He played in a total of 51 games.
