Plainview’s Tatum Brewster – Athlete Spotlight Presented by Carter County Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM

Plainview High School softball player Tatum Brewster is a senior and a starting infielder for head coach Kenna Hunter. Brewster started playing softball at the age of five and she’s loved the sport ever since.  “What I like most about the sport is the mental aspect of the game. You can’t let the game beat you or else you will never be successful, mental toughness is a key aspect in being a softball player,” said Brewster. 

Toughness is a trend at Plainview. Being prepared with an eagerness to get better is something Brewster loves about her team and teammates.  “What I love most about my team and teammates is how willing we are to learn and grow. Everyone is ready to show up and become a better player than they were the day before with each practice and game,” said Brewster. 

In the classroom, Brewster takes a similar approach to her studies. Math may be her favorite subject, but academics in general are always the priority.  “Academics are my main priority. My academic accomplishments reign over my athletic ones. After I graduate I plan to attend a university and obtain a degree in business marketing and communications,” said Brewster. 

Not only a softball player, Brewster is a member of the National Honor Society, Student Council and she is the head of the Spirit Club. 

Her drive to be successful may come from the influences in her life.  “My father has been a big influence in my life. He has raised me to be a competitor in all parts of life. He has taught me to be a winner on and off the field while being respectful in doing so,” said Brewster. 

When the dust of the game settles, Brewster enjoys other challenges like training horses.  “In my free time I enjoy riding and training horses at Johnson Performance Horses. 

Plainview High School is a great place to be a student-athlete because the school does not make you choose whether you can be successful in just academics or just athletics, but allows you to excel in both! Plainview focuses on getting you a college ready education and supporting you in your athletic endeavors.”
