 Brian Lewerke, Michigan State, Player News


  Brian Lewerke didn't get drafted, but the former Michigan State quarterback might have landed in just the right spot. Getting selected in the NFL's seven-round draft was coin flip for the Spartans' career leader in total yards, and when Lewerke's name wasn't called, the expectation was he would land a free-agent deal. Two days after the draft, that deal came as Lewerke signed with the New England Patriots. "I'm not disappointed that he's a free agent and didn't get drafted," said Mike Giovando, an Arizona-based quarterback coach who has worked with Lewerke for the bulk of his career. "And he's the same way. He's happy he's got a chance.

"He's a great quarterback who's gonna learn his playbook, and I think there are going to be some other things they're going to see that they like. And when they get him out there and watch him throw it, they're gonna be like, 'He can spin it. He can spin it.' He can throw it and he can move it around the field. And when he gets in a game, he's kind of a gamer, man. When he gets in the game and chips are on the line and when he's healthy and feeling he's tough to deal with. He's a good player, a really good player." Lewerke flashed plenty of that talent as a three-year starter at Michigan State, primarily in his sophomore season when he threw for more than 2,700 yards and 20 touchdowns while running for more than 500 yards and five more scores as the Spartans won 10 games. - Detroit News

  No, Brian Lewerke didn't get picked in the 2020 NFL draft. But as an undrafted free agent, he will now go learn under one of the great coaches in football history. The former Michigan State football quarterback agreed to terms with the New England Patriots, led by six-time Super Bowl-winning coach Bill Belichick. Of course, those Super Bowls came with Tom Brady at quarterback. Now, the longtime Patriot is in Tampa Bay. Now at QB for the Pats is Jarrett Stidham, drafted last year, and another former Spartan, Brian Hoyer, back for another stint under Belichick. Lewerke, a 6-foot-3, 216-pounder, threw for 3,079 yards, 17 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 2019. That came after a disappointing junior season, when he had 2.040 yards passing, eight touchdowns and 11 interceptions. His sophomore year offered some promise when he threw for 2,793 yards and 20 touchdowns and ran for another 559 and five scores. - Lansing State Journal

  Lewerke thinks he did well to answer some of the critics at the NFL Combine where he says he played well and "killed it" in the interviews. Still, as the draft nears, there are questions. Some are legitimate, others are odd. More than one analyst has questioned his athleticism, a bit strange considering Lewerke ran for 1,255 yards in his career. "I don't really get that either," Lewerke said. "Maybe people just base it off my 40 times out of the combine where I didn't run very well, and they see 4.95 and say, 'This guy must not be fast.' But I had 1,000 yards rushing and I was pulling away from guys on long touchdown runs. So if you watch the film, you'll definitely see that I'm an athletic dude. That's definitely something I hope to bring to the table for a team."

In the meantime, Lewerke is back home with his parents in Phoenix. Things aren't as strict as they are in Michigan and he's been able to continue throwing with receivers while doing his best to come up with weights for workouts around the house. He's also keeping in contact with a handful of NFL teams through Zoom meetings, Facetime or traditional phone calls. He hopes one of those teams pulls the trigger and drafts him, though he isn't making any predictions. "I don't know. I really have no idea," Lewerke said. "That's kind of what my agent was saying, is that when he talks to teams, there's teams that really like me or a team that doesn't even want to look at me at all. So it's kind of in between, depending on what team you talk to, but it is a little weird not knowing really at all where I'm gonna go." - Detroit News

  2020 NFL COMBINE INVITE: Brian Lewerke, QB, Michigan State,...A three-year starter, Lewerke finished his career as the school's all-time leader in total offense with 9,548 yards, including an MSU single-season record 3,442 yards as a senior in 2019. He is the only Spartan QB in school history to throw for more than 8,000 yards (8,293) and rush for more than 1,000 (1,255). - Michigan State Football

  Brian Lewerke threw for 320 yards and a touchdown and ran for a score in Michigan State's 27-21 victory over Wake Forest on Friday night in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium. Lewerke threw a 10-yard pass to wide receiver Cody White in the third quarter to put the Spartans (7-6) ahead 27-21 and they survived down the stretch to give embattled coach Mark Dantonio his sixth bowl victory. Wake Forest (8-5) missed a chance to win nine games for just the third time in program history.

Michigan State tried to give away the game twice in the fourth, the first time on Lewerke's shovel pass to tight end Trenton Gillison inside the 10 that was stripped and recovered by linebacker Ja'Cquez Williams at the 6. The Deamon Deacons failed to score on the drive, and handed Michigan State another chance to seal the victory. Again, the Spartans couldn't put it away when Matt Coghlin was wide left on a 28-yard field goal attempt with 3:03 left Wake Forest's last chance ended on an incomplete pass on its own 16. White finished with 97 yards receiving and Elijah Collins had 96 yards rushing. Dantonio said he would play mutliple QBs to give the program a better feel for what it had on the depth chart to work with next season. But Michigan State stuck with Lewerke, in his fifth-year and making his 38th career start, and he responded in the clutch when he connected with White. Lewerke passed Connor Cook (9,403) to become Michigan State's career leader in total offense and was the bowl MVP. - AP College Football

  Michigan State QB Brian Lewerke is playing some of the worst football of his career as he goes to the Big House to face one of the nation's top defenses in No. 14 Michigan (7-2, 4-2, No. 15). Lewerke is completing just 50% of his passes with two touchdowns and six interceptions during the four-game losing streak that's followed a 4-1 start. Playing with a sore right (throwing) shoulder, he was just 5 for 25 for 66 yards in last year's 21-7 loss to the Wolverines. On Tuesday, he said he took a hit to the head against Illinois -- "definitely rung my bell for a little bit " - but said he felt OK. - AP College Football

  With Michigan State's offense sputtering, quarterback Brian Lewerke's play has come under scrutiny. He's started every game in 2019, but Rocky Lombardi and Theo Day have played a bit as well. Lombardi is just 7 for 21 with two interceptions. "Brian is the guy who gives us the best chance to win now," Dantonio said. "I do think if you're not having success, the option of moving to another guy and giving them another opportunity is the right thing to do in that scenario. But I think he's played well enough for this year to warrant that at this point. It's game to game as we go through this thing. I'm not going to sit there and say never, ever. But he is our quarterback at this time and I still believe in him." - AP College Football

  Matt Coghlin made a tie-breaking 21-yard field goal with 5 seconds remaining, and No. 25 Michigan State beat Indiana 40-31 on Saturday. After Coghlin's kick gave the Spartans (4-1, 2-0 Big Ten) a 34-31 lead, Indiana tried to lateral its way down the field on its final offensive play, but that resulted in a fumble that Michigan State recovered for a touchdown. Brian Lewerke threw for 300 yards and three touchdowns for the Spartans, who held off the upset-minded Hoosiers (3-2, 0-2) on a rare day when Michigan State's defense struggled. Michael Penix Jr. returned for Indiana after missing the previous two games with an undisclosed injury - and he gave the Spartans fits, completing 20 passes in a row during one stretch.

Penix threw for three touchdowns, including an 11-yarder to Whop Philyor that tied the game at 31 with 2:00 remaining. Lewerke immediately led the Spartans back down the field. Darrell Stewart outfought defensive back Jaylin Williams for a 44-yard reception, then Lewerke broke free for a 30-yard run that put the ball at the 1. Rather than try to score right away, the Spartans ran the clock down and set up Coghlin's kick. Elijah Collins gave Michigan State a 7-0 lead with a 4-yard scoring run, but Indiana answered late in the first quarter with a 28-yard TD pass from Penix to Philyor. Lewerke put the Spartans back ahead with a 5-yard touchdown pass to Stewart in the second, but Penix scored on a 2-yard run to tie it at 14. - Michigan State/AP College Football

  Brian Lewerke had three touchdown passes, Elijah Collins added a rushing TD and Michigan State bounced back from a stunning loss a week ago for a 31-10 victory over Northwestern on Saturday. Lewerke completed 18 of 31 passes for 228 yards and Collins had 76 yards rushing on 17 carries as the Spartans (3-1, 1-0 Big Ten Conference) snapped a three-game losing streak against the Wildcats (1-2, 0-1). Michigan State lost 10-7 to Arizona State last week after an apparent game-tying field goal was negated by penalty.

The win was the 110th for coach Mark Dantonio at Michigan State, which makes him the winningest coach in program history. Dantonio, who had been tied with Duffy Daugherty, is 110-52 in 13 seasons. Northwestern had its eight-game winning streak in Big Ten regular-season games snapped. The Wildcats had won 15 of 16 regular-season conference games. Quarterback Hunter Johnson completed 15 of 26 passes for 88 yards with an interception before being pulled in the fourth quarter. - AP College Football
