Brewer Named Permanent Athletic Director

Ralph L. Brewer, Frostburg, has been named Frostburg State University’s athletic director effective July 1, 2003, following a national search.

Brewer has served as FSU’s interim athletic director since 2000. Since that time, Brewer has worked closely with the FSU coaching staff to monitor and encourage strong academic performance. As a result, the overall GPA of the student athletes has risen, as well as retention rates. Fundraising for athletics has also climbed during Brewer’s tenure.

“Mr. Brewer has consistently affirmed the Division III philosophy that student-athletes are not bought through expensive scholarship programs, but that they are expected to do well in class, as well as develop their skills as athletes,” says FSU President Catherine R. Gira. “I am pleased that the selection committee has chosen Mr. Brewer to fill this position."

Brewer started his career at Frostburg State in 1969 as a member of the FSU English Department, where he served as chair. He has been a strong supporter of Bobcat athletics, chair of the FSU Athletic Advisory Committee and the university’s faculty representative for the steering committee of the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference.
