Brewster began his career in 2009, with the Brantford Bisons in the Ontario Football Conference (OFC). He would move on to play for the St John’s Green Eagles of the Brant County Secondary School Atheltic Association (BCSSAA).

It’s with the Eagles that Brewster won his first award as he was named Offensive MVP.

The Brantford standout also played for Team West at the Ontario Prospect Challenge.  The big frame receiver adds that he will compete with the London Jr Mustangs of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL) this summer.

It was with the Green Eagles that Brewster experienced last season’s highlight.

”My highlight of last season was going to Columbus,Ohio and playing The Gahanna Lincoln Lions and being able to compete and learn against strong and experienced defensive backs in the United States.”




Throughout his gridiron career, Brewster finds inspiration within his family.

”The most influential people in my life would have to be my parents, constantly pushing me to do better in life and driving me to make the right decisions to benefit later in life. In football I’d have to say my brother,he was a track star at the University of Western, and played defensive back. Growing up in a household with your brother being successful set an image in my mind from a young age.”

The Green Eagles Offensive MVP adds that his competitive personality in sports  is also pushing him to work hard.

”I’ve been playing basketball since the age of four. When it comes to sports, competition is what I live for. To exclude yourself from the rest and show everyone and make a name for yourself is what I live for.”

With this motivation, the Brandfort athlete goes through a CIS/CFL training regimen to get ready for his season.

”I am currently following a training regimen that is similar to the University of Western’s football players. Having association with some of the members of London’s combine facility, which helps train some of the Western players (including Shaquille Johnson, the player who ran the fastest 40 in the 2016 CFL combine) they have given me a training regime to do in the off season which has helped me drastically athletically.”

Brewster is in the middle of the recruitment process, he is still open to all universities. He hopes he can find the school that will fit him academically and on the gridiron.

Although the offensive weapon didn’t have any official visits yet, he is in contact with coaches from the CIS, and plans to have unofficial visits to York University and the University of Ottawa.

”It’s been extremely exciting so far and I am looking forward to this process. Being able to meet new coaches and fulfill a dream of mine has been great, its been an awesome experience being in contact with several university coaches in the province.”



Being in the class of 2017, Chris Brewster plans to align for a CIS team in that same year. Meanwhile, he will continue to improve his skills on the gridiron with passion.

”I plan on improving my skills as a wide receiver which will help me in the process.”

”This offseason, I have planned to move to London for the summer. This will benefit me because I can train at the Combine Facility there and train with many other players that are on the same journey as me. Constantly grinding everyday will help me improve, just pushing myself to the limits will make me get to my goal.”
