Know Your Blazer: Damon Isaiah Stewart
Updated: Feb 12, 2022
Southside Dragons are proud to present to you another addition to an already outstanding QB room...Please welcome Damon Stewart!
Hometown: Jones Creek, GA
High School: Oak Grove HS, MS
High School: Damon started his high school career in the state of Georgia at Chattahoochee High School where he spent 2017 and 2018 before moving to Oak Grove High School in Hattiesburg, MS in 2019. His junior year in Georgia at Chattahoochee HS he threw for 1,301 yards and 13 TD's. He also rushed for 508 yards and 6 TD's.
His senior year at Oak Grove HS he threw for 2,350 yards and an incredible 31 TD's. He also rushed for 341 yards and 7 TD's.
He was ranked the No. 230 QB in the country and the No. 5 QB in the state of Mississippi.
After watching some Hudl and other highlight films he is definitely one of the better dual threat QBs I've seen and could honestly play 3 to 4 other positions on the football field! An elite athlete.
College Offers: Damon did not have any D1 offers as a QB out of high school as far as I could find. He enrolled at East Mississippi Community College in 2020.
EMCC Career: Damon played in 5 games at EMCC totaling 272 yards and 1 TD. He was the backup to a more senior QB who had already been in the program for a year. Take a look at a few of the linked videos below to have an idea of what he is capable of though!
Needless to say the QB competition at UAB this year is going to be fierce and intense! We have so much talent in the QB room, talent that is going to push each other to be the best they can possibly be. I expect Damon to be right in the thick of the battle. Makes me wish we had cameras at practices just to watch the battle! You do you Damon and Blazer nation will be watching!
