"As a coach and player, Billy Brewer shared a love for Ole Miss that was unparalleled," current Ole Miss head coach Matt Luke said in a statement. "He was greatly admired by his players and his teammates and will forever be engrained in the history of Rebel Football. Our prayers go out to the Brewer family and all of Rebel Nation during this time."
"If I hadn't been exposed to this culture, the passion wouldn't be there," Luke said. "If I wanted to be like them, I had to get turntables."
