Millsaps great Sean Brewer elected to College Football Hall of Fame
ATLANTA (GoMajors.com) - A three-time first-team All-American in Division-III , Millsaps Majors' great Sean Brewer has been selected for the College Football Hall of Fame.
Brewer will be officially inducted on December 8th, 2015 at the annual National Football Foundation Awards ceremony at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.
Brewer rewrote the Millsaps, Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) and Division-III record books during his hall of fame career (89-92). Brewer is the lone defensive linemen in Division-III history to be a three-time first-team All-American, a feat he accomplished his sophomore through senior seasons (90-92). Brewer was also a two-time Champion USA All-America First Team honoree (1991 and 1992).
Brewer headlined the SCAC's 15-year anniversary team where he was a two-time Defensive Player of the Year (91-92). Brewer holds the Majors' all-time records in: solo tackles (332), quarterback sacks (52) and is second in total tackles (435), a mark that sits fourth in SCAC history. He also holds the Millsaps and SCAC single-season record in solo tackles (99) and the Millsaps' record for sacks (15). He was inducted into the Millsaps' Sports Hall of Fame in 2004.
"Brewer was a great player, unstoppable," Millsaps baseball coach Jim Page said. Page was a defensive assistant during Brewers' career. "I mainly coached the secondary and we had one of the better units in the nation," Page said. "We were good, but we knew our success had a lot to do with the havoc that Sean wreaked on every play."
