Chris Stewart was regarded as one of the top offensive linemen coming out of high school. He then went onto play football at the University of Notre Dame. He played offensive guard and offensive tackle for the Fighting Irish.
He started 35 games in his collegiate career, but played in a total of 41. He racked up numerous pancakes, as he also played a pretty big role on Special Teams as well. He played for great ND coaches, Charlie Weis and Brian Kelly.
During his senior season, he became the first player to enroll in law school and play D1 football in NCAA history.

I never knew that I’d be 24 years old and this would be life. It was never supposed to be like this, was all that I could think about. The day was April 26, 2011 and a friend of mine, Cheta Ozougwu, had just been taken as Mr. Irrelevant, the last pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

I spent the rest of that day like the previous two days in complete and utter silence. Sitting at a friend’s family home in Culver, IN was a surreal moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life. I may have been forgotten for those three days in April of 2010, but I am hell bent on making sure ‘they’ won’t ever forget about me again.
