FW Brewer heads into 5-4A play at 3-0

Something good is brewing at Fort Worth Brewer.

The Bears of Brewer, the only high school in the White Settlement ISD on the west side of Fort Worth, have clawed to a 3-0 start through non-district play

That is heady territory for a program that hasn’t had a winning season since 2002.

The impetus for the good start dates to the way the 2010 team finished last season, winning three of its final four on the way to a 5-5 campaign. From that team, 13 starters returned this fall.

The wins have come over Fort Worth Western Hills (14-10), Joshua (40-7), and Denton (45-25).

Running back C.J. Washington has rushed for an average of 127 yards and a touchdown per game.

Quarterback Skyler Howard has hit on 58 percent of his passes for 506 yards and five touchdowns.

The Bears will put their unbeaten record on the line in a District 5-4A opener at 0-3 Springtown in what they hope will be a payback game. On the way to a playoff berth a year ago, Springtown routed Brewer, 65-14.

Aledo and Birdville are expected to dominate 5-4A this season, but the competition for the remaining two playoff berths involving Fort Worth Boswell, Springtown, Trophy Club Bryon Nelson, Azle, Keller Timber Creek and Brewer should be interesting.
