Brewster shows off arm at Husky camp

Mullen (Denver) QB Clint Brewster was a busy young man this past week. He and his father, flew north to visit Washington State and throw for the Cougar coaching staff on Wednesday and then headed west to take in a day of the Washington football camp. After his visit, Brewster was very happy he saw both schools and came away impressed with the surroundings.

"It is so beautiful up there, I was really surprised actually," Brewster said from the airport after his first trip to the Evergreen State. "Pullman had that small, college-town feel and Washington is set right in Seattle and it's almost right in the city.

"I really liked Seattle a lot. Actually I liked both of them a lot. They're just different, but both were really great. Washington's campus is really great and there's trees all around and it's right on the lake. I liked that a lot."

Brewster met with Washington State coach (Bill Doba) and his staff and got a tour of the campus and then showed off his arm for the Cougar staff.

"They said they were happy with how I performed and they said they like me a lot," Brewster said.

Then it was off to Seattle to show the Husky coaching staff what he could do.

"I got to campus on Thursday morning and met with coach (Bob) Simmons who is the coach recruiting me," Brewster said. "Then he introduced us to coach (Tyrone) Willingham and he talked with us for over an hour.

"Meeting coach Willingham is great because he talks about everything from football, to school, to life and how to be and act as a player and a person."

On Friday Brewster threw passes at the Husky camp, impressing both Willingham and offensive coordinator Tim Lappano.

"(Lappano) said he was really happy with what I did and also told me that I put it right where it needed to be," Brewster said. "After that we went in and had 'chalk-talk' where he diagrammed plays and showed me different reads and sets and stuff and what he expects out of his quarterbacks.

"That stuff comes really easy for me because I've been in film sessions since I was a little kid really."

A lot of his film study away from his Mullen coaches, has been with professional quarterbacks like Jake Plummer and Drew Brees who his father has helped coach in his stints with the San Diego Chargers and currently the Denver Broncos.

"That's definitely an advantage I have because I can do that anytime I really want to watch tape," Brewster said in another interview. "I always learn something new all the time from those players and the pro coaches. It's pretty great really."

Brewster said he is done with camps and is preparing to take in offseason workouts with his high school teammates. He also expects to get a call from the Husky coaches pretty soon.

"They told me they would let me know soon what they decided," Brewster said. "I really like both schools and Washington, if they offer, would be right there for me with the other schools I'm looking at."
