1 North State Conference (1937)
Pierce Oliver "Kidd" Brewer (May 5, 1908 – November 22, 1991) was the fourth head football coach for the Appalachian State Mountaineers located in the town of Boone in Watauga County, North Carolina from 1935–38. A colorful part of North Carolina's past, Brewer's 1937 squad went unbeaten and unscored upon during the regular season, outscoring their opponents 206–0. Brewer was an All-American at Duke before coaching at Appalachian. After leaving the Mountaineers, Brewer started a sales career before enlisting in the Navy during World War II. After the war Brewer served as secretary and administrative assistant to U.S. Senators Josiah William Bailey and William B. Umstead, respectively. Kidd Brewer Stadium was named in his honor on September 3, 1988.
In addition to his athletic career, Brewer was an aide to U.S. senators, and experienced significant wealth by purchasing land that was used later for roads. In 1963, Brewer was sentenced to 18 months in state prison for bid rigging.
