Sports columnist Education: Western Kentucky University, BA in Print Journalism Jerry Brewer is a sports columnist at The Washington Post. He joined The Post in 2015 after more than eight years as a columnist with the Seattle Times. During his career, he also has worked at The Courier-Journal in Louisville, Ky., The Orlando Sentinel and The Philadelphia Inquirer. He approaches sports journalism with a mantra: "The game is not the story. The game is a platform to tell a story." Through sports, Brewer chronicles the ups and downs, virtues and flaws, of humans whose lives play out before thousands of fans. He sees sports as riveting to the imagination and enlivened by the zany and unpredictable behavior of regular people who stumble into iconic status. But he cares mostly about affecting a community through his work, through powerful storytelling or poignant, frank opinions. He lives with his wife and two sons in Arlington. Honors & Awards:

It was supposed to be the sport’s biggest stage. In our bizarre attempt to outlast the novel coronavirus, it was supposed to be grandest athletic event held thus far. The Finals, however, rates as merely good enough.
