Christian Stewart, a former quarterback for the Snow College football team, has moved on to play Division I football at Brigham Young University (BYU).
Stewart was the starting quarterback for Snow in the 2012 season. Stewart posted great numbers at Snow, averaging 240 passing yards per game and throwing for 37 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in the 2012 season.
He moved on to BYU where he became the backup quarterback for Taysom Hill. Hill was injured in a game against Utah State University that made coaches give Stewart first-string duties.
Stewart brings a new style of offense to BYU. Hill was a mobile quarterback who took on a large share of rushing responsibilities that propelled BYU to their 4-0 start. Stewart focuses more on the throw and has been posting great passing numbers with his accuracy and arm strength.
Stewart led BYU to their first win under his leadership with a 27-7 victory over Middle Tennessee State on Nov. 1. He threw for 316 yards and two touchdown passes as he pushed BYU to gain a 5-4 record and ended the four-game losing streak.
Stewart is gaining success and has been a model alumnus from Snow College!
