Brewer Staying Calm In Battle

No, junior quarterback Michael Brewer didn't transfer to Virginia Tech from Texas Tech to stand on the sideline. Brewer knew going into his decision that he would have to compete and earn the starting spot.

Though his competition has dwindled a bit, Brewer has put himself in good position to earn the starting nod. But offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler has yet to make an official decision.

A race with seven quarterbacks has turned into a race with two, among Brewer and senior Mark Leal. And while Brewer isn't acknowledging that either has a leg up to be the starter, he said the battle has made each a better quarterback.

"Competition just makes everybody better," Brewer said. "I think it's really brought out the best in both of us and causing us to compete and work harder each day. Pretty soon, they'll name a guy and we'll take it from there."

With less than two weeks before the season-opener, against William & Mary, Brewer is trying not to stress about his standing or if he'll be named the starter.

"Eventually, somebody's gonna get named," he said. "I just try not to really think about it and just go out there and perform each day consistently and everything will work out the way it's supposed to."

Below is Brewer's full interview with the media yesterday:
