Magnolia To Name Stadium After Bill Stewart

Posted: Updated:

During Magnolia's  game  Friday against Oak Glen there will be a special ceremony at Alumni Field.

From now on it'll be called Alumni Field at Bill Stewart Memorial Stadium.

Named in honor of the former WVU football coach, who was raised in New Martinsville, and was always proud to say where he was from. Stewart coached the Mountaineers from 2008 thru 2010. He graduated from Magnolia in 1970. Coach Stew's widow Karen, and son Blaine will be on hand, along with former Mountaineer star Owen Schmitt.
