Jace Brewer has accepted an assistant coaching position at Oklahoma Baptist University.
“This happened in the Lord’s timing,” Brewer said. “It’s an absolute blessing how it’s all played out.”
Brewer was the head fast-pitch and slow-pitch softball coach at Washington for eight years.
He led the program to fast-pitch State titles in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
He won slow-pitch softball championships in 2014 and 2015.
Brewer’s teams made the State tournament in slow-pitch and fast-pitch in each of his 16 seasons (eight for both fast-pitch and slow-pitch).
Brewer will coach hitting and infield and looks forward to new experiences going from high school to college game.
“I was talking to Jake Phillips at Cushing about the relationships and friendships I’ve created in Oklahoma,” Brewer said. “My experience at the high school level lets me get a sense for these kids around the state who we recruit to OBU and how they are, not just on the field, but in the classroom and in the halls.”
Brewer, a Washington High School graduate played collegiately at Baylor University before being drafted in 2000.
He played for the Texas Rangers, Kansas City Royals and Tampa Bay Rays organizations.
Tylor Lampkin will replace Brewer as Washington’s head coach.
“God provided this at the right time for me,” Brewer said. “I’m also excited for coach Lampkin – who’s one of my best friends.”
