The Colt Brennan Story

He was Hawaii’s golden child once destined for greatness. Colt Brennan earned rock star status with his boyish good looks and record-setting performances on the gridiron. Fans regularly waited in long lines to purchase jersey No. 15 or camped at shopping malls just to get his autograph. Hawaii’s Heisman Trophy finalist could do no wrong.

“He had legions of fans, and he took Hawaii to a place where it had never been before,” says longtime private investigator Matt Levi. “He helped put Hawaii on a national stage with his remarkable achievements. But his fame was a two-edged sword, and it came with a price.”

Brennan recently sat down with Levi and agreed to take part in a revealing tell-all interview. The veteran journalist, who has been sharing stories with Hawaii viewers for 40 years, says the 29-year-old Brennan spoke openly about his flaws and failures.

“We talked about his 2010 accident, the DUI arrest, even his problems in Colorado,” says Levi. “He went on television and spoke about things that are very painful to him. That’s difficult for a young man.”

Levi says viewers will hear stories that Brennan has never shared publicly.

Levi’s 30-minute special Matt Levi Investigates: The Colt Brennan Story will air three times next week: Nov. 20 at 6:30 p.m. on KGMB; Nov. 22 at 6:30 p.m. on KHNL (following the Thanksgiving Day NFL game); and Nov. 24 at 6 p.m. on KGMB.
