FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Coming off the program’s first SAC title since 2000 and a trip to 4A semi-state, expectations are high for the Wayne boys basketball program heading into a new season. However, the Generals will have a new leader at the helm, as former assistant Anthony Brewer has been promoted to the top job.
Wayne finished 21-5 overall last season and advanced to semi-state where they fell to Flory Bidunga and the Kokomo Wildkats.
The General return several of last year’s starters, including Indiana Junior All-Star Jevon Lewis Jr., plus standouts Chase Barnes, HJ Dillard, and Preston Comer.
Brewer has spent the last four years as an assistant under Pickens as Wayne. A North Side High School graduate, Brewer has also been an assistant at Concordia and worked with the Gym Rats program for over a decade.
Brewer is a fifth grade teacher at Study Elementary.
