Coach David Brewerton

Zachary High School Football Head Coach and Athletic Director David Brewerton was named as a finalist for the 2022 National High School Athletic Coaches Association (NHSACA) Athletic Director of the Year. NHSACA presents the award annually to an exemplary athletic director.

Each state association nominates an Athletic Director as a representative at the NHSACA National ADOY Awards program. Each nominee is evaluated based on a rubric that reflects duties and responsibilities of Athletic Directors as well as longevity, service to high school sports, and honors. Coach Brewerton is one of eight finalists from across the country, and the overall winner will be announced in June at the NHSACA convention in Iowa.
A native of Baton Rouge, Brewerton is a graduate of Catholic High School. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Louisiana State University in 1998 and a master’s degree from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2004. He served as an assistant football and wrestling coach at Redemptorist High School from 1998 to 2003, where he was a part of two football state titles and five wrestling state titles.
Coach Brewerton later coached at both Catholic of Pointe Coupee and Jesuit High School before taking the Head Football Coach and Athletic Director position at Livonia High School in 2007. While at Livonia his team reached the Quarterfinals, Semi-finals, and State finals in a three-year run.
At Zachary High School, Coach Brewerton has amassed an 8-year record of 93-16, including six District Championships, one State Quarterfinals appearance in 2020, three State Semi-final appearances in 2014, 2016, and 2019 and four State Championship Titles in 2015, 2017, 2018 & 2021. His overall record as a head coach is 149-43. He was voted The Louisiana Coaches Association Coach of the Year in 2017 and 2018, the Tiger Rag Coach of the Year for 2018, as well as the Louisiana Sports Writer’s Association Coach of the Year in 2012 (Livonia) and 2021 (Zachary). Brewerton was also named Louisiana’s Athletic Director of the Year for the 2020-2021 school year.
“Coach Brewerton is committed to building exceptional young men and women. His passion for providing the very best opportunities for success for every child in the district, resonates not only throughout our athletic program but the entire school district,” said Scott Devillier, ZCSD Superintendent.
His list of coaching accolades is long, but he has also been a huge part of the athletic development and success of our entire district as the athletic director of the Zachary Community School District. Coach Brewerton is recognized for his work, dedication, commitment, and achievement both on and off the field. His body of work with the student-athletes he coaches and the staff that he mentors has been impressive to witness.
Zachary Athletic Foundation board member, Brent Bradley, had many positive things to say. “If you know him, you know the level of class and caring that he coaches with, and his success comes largely in part to the relationships he builds with his staff and his players.  Not only is he successful with the team that he coaches, but he has built a strong, organized, and successful athletic program for all the other teams in the district at both the elementary and secondary levels.”
Eric Held, Director of the Louisiana High School Coaches Association stated, “we are honored that our state is represented by you, as a leader in your sport. Keep up the great work!” 
Coach Brewerton and his wife Casey have a 9-year-old son, Gable, who attends Zachary Elementary School.
