Houston County’s Cam Stewart patrolled the middle of the defense last year and ended up with 80 tackles, and created a duo of turnovers each in interceptions, fumbles forced and recovered. It was a productive year no-doubt for the intense class of 2021 defender, and that momentum has built towards solid recruiting interest here during the offseason.
“Recruiting this offseason has been going good for me. Some schools have showed some interest in me and two schools have offered: Tennessee State and Stetson University.” Stewart went on to talk about more schools, “I have heard from Yale, Air Force, Berry College, Reinhardt, Dordt, and Duke.”
No matter how you slice it, this offseason has been nothing short of bizarre with the virus creating the longest dead period in the history of college football. Covid-19’s impact has trickled down to every aspect of life, and Stewart had to adapt.
“It’s taken some time to adapt to everything, but especially football because the practices have so many restrictions, but I just do what always do, and that’s work,” Stewart said.
Stewart believes his biggest strength on the field is recognizing the play. If you roll back the tape, you will find that Stewart aptly describes as his best skill. The 2021 safety gets good depth in coverage, and on both of his interceptions last year he made long reads where he darts in front of the pass.
Going back to our scouting notes on Stewart, and one area we believe he can improve is wrapping up at the thighs when making a tackle, so it was interesting that he also believed that was an area to improve as well. “Even though I make a lot of tackles, I feel like my biggest weakness is wrapping up on the tackles,” Stewart said.
Since last year Stewart believes he has improved the most on his pass coverage, and also his open field tackling. With his high football IQ, there is a good chance the senior could end up with over 100 tackles on the year.
This upcoming 2020 season will Stewart’s last at Houston County, and wants to keep his goals simple. “My goal for this fall is to be a better overall player and teammate on and off the field.”
Houston County is always one of the more talented teams in middle Georgia each year that we have been covering the state. Their defense the last few seasons has been the hallmark to their success, and Stewart will definitely look to lead another talent bunch, so stay tuned to @RecruitGeorgia on Twitter to hear how his season plays out, and the latest recruiting information on the senior prospect.
