Many kids, from a young age, know what they want to do with their lives and know exactly how they are going to get there, no matter the cost. Keegan Brewer was one of those kids.
Growing up, Mr. Brewer, a high school football standout, knew that becoming a firefighter was something he always wanted to do, and he ultimately put aside his college football career to do just that. Mr. Brewer was the University of North Texas (UNT) receiver who pulled off that infamous fake fair catch play vs. Arkansas in fall 2018, but the dream of being a firefighter ultimately outshined his football aspirations. Mr. Brewer recalls, “My passion for the profession steered more in the direction of being a firefighter the older I got, and I wanted to go ahead and get to a place where I would be able make money and support myself. So, that made my decision to pursue firefighting pretty easy.”
Mr. Brewer, who is finishing his degree at UNT, began his career with the Frisco Fire Department in January 2019 and has not looked back as he continually seeks to grow and learn with each shift worked. He says the department is a true brotherhood and takes pride in the fact that it is such a community-oriented department.
