Tuesday, February 05, 2013 - by B.B. Branton

Boyd-Buchanan all-state senior tackle Malik Brewer will sign scholarship papers with Tusculum College (Tenn.) Wednesday at 11 a.m. at BBS.

A Mr. Football nominee, Brewer led the Bucs to the Region 5-A title and the state semifinals (12-2) this past season with 65 total tackles, five tackles for loss, a pair of sacks and one fumble recovery.

"Malik really was a pleasure to coach as he came early and left late every day," said Boyd-Buchanan football coach Grant Reynolds.

"He epitomizes what a Buccaneer football player really is. Our Staff and our school are really excited about the opportunity he will have to play at the next level and most importantly earn a college degree. We know he will impact Tusculum in a great way."
