Stewart Living Out Late Father's Dream in OVAC All-Star Game


Morgantown High School senior Blaine Stewart, son of the late West Virginia University football coach Bill Stewart lived out his father's legacy by playing in this weekend's Rudy Mumley OVAC All-Star Football Charity Classic.

His West Virginia All-Stars defeated Ohio 28-19.

Stewart, a James Madison recruit, had two catches for 20 yards, including a two-point conversion, and also recovered a fumble on a muffed punt.

"MY dad always talked about how special the OVAC game is, and I'm honored to be a part of it," said Stewart.

Stewart commented earlier in the week from Bethany College, where the teams prepare for the OVAC game, on some of the good times and memories he had while growing up in Morgantown. He would attend practices and games while his dad was the WVU coach. He also talked about the Fiesta Bowl win over Oklahoma, were his father gave the now infamous "leave no doubt" speech prior to one of the biggest wins in school history.
