High School: Timberline High School (WA)
- Stewart ended his high school career as the state of Washington’s all-time leading rusher, and one of the premier football recruits in the country. He rushed for an incredible 7,755 yards and 95 touchdowns in his career, breaking the 1,000-yard plateau in each of his four years at Timberline, leading The Seattle Times to name him the state’s fifth greatest running back of all-time.
College: University of Oregon
- Stewart was a Maxwell Award (best player) semifinalist in his last season at Oregon, and with good reason.

Stewart was a key part of Oregon’s potent offensive attack all year, posting a career-best 310 all-purpose yards against Stanford.
NFL: Carolina Panthers, Selected in the 2008 NFL Draft, 1st Round, 13th Overall
