Brian McNamara was a quiz bowl player at the University of Waterloo, previously playing as an undergrad at Western Ontario. He previously played Reach For The Top at North Park, and it sadly did not provide him a very strong basis for quiz bowl, although it helped to expand his knowledge of trash. He is doing his best to make up for his past in Reach, but it is slow going. He generally just rides Will Nediger's coat-tails. Brian was the leading scorer at the inaugural Toronto Winter Invitational tournament, and also led the TERP and Penn Bowl Trash mirrors at McMaster in scoring , .
