Congrats Coach Brewster


 As the school year comes to an end, some things are only getting started. Former assistant boys basketball coach, Dylan Brewster, takes the role of head coach. Brewster has been the assistant coach here at the high school for 3 years and has led the boys to many victories. Brewster is looking forward to this new chapter at Lenoir City. 

“I am just super grateful for the opportunity to lead this group of young men. I would be remiss if I didn’t bring up my faith. I am thankful for everything I have been blessed with by my Savior, Jesus Christ. All the experiences I have had up to this point in my life have made it an exciting opportunity to take on this position. It is super special to be able to do it where I once played. The fact that I know a lot of the people that played here before me, with me, and now helping coach the kids playing after me makes it very unique. Something I will cherish every day we get to go on the court and work,” Brewster said. 

While this is a big step to take on, the coach shares his motivation and reasoning to step up.

“I took the head coaching position because it is a great way to impact people. I am so thankful for this opportunity to continue to serve the people in the community that I have grown up in. I am looking forward to helping the kids that come to play basketball here develop on and off the court. My passion is teaching and being a basketball coach, but my mission is to serve others,” Brewster said.

Brewster then goes on to share what he is looking forward to about the position.

“The main thing I am looking forward to is the opportunity to serve the players, coaching staff that are with me, this school, and the administration. It is something I have been privileged to be able to do for 3 years as an assistant coach, and now, I have the opportunity to do it in a different way as the head coach,” Brewster said. 

Brewster gives insight into his core values to the team and what his goals are for the program. 

“My main goal for the program is to get three main points across to the entire group. We want to serve one another, compete each and every day, and finally, we want to have joy while doing so. If these three things happen in the program, the results will take care of themselves. I want to develop each player into the basketball player they want to become, but more importantly, I want to make sure each kid grows up into a young man by the time they are done in our program. We want to leave the place better than we found it,” Brewster said. 

Brewster has a goal for each player not only on the court but off the court.

“My three main things for this program are service, competitiveness, and joy. We want all our kids that come through Lenoir City High School Basketball Team to have those three attributes to take with them in life,” Brewster said. 

As an educator and head coach, Brewster is ready to step up and bring more to the surface of the program. He is motivated to make the student-athletes of Lenoir City better in the gym and in the real world. Congratulations on this big accomplishment!
