NEW YORK--On the heels of his D3football.com Team of the Week selection, Adrian College sophomore Emmanuel Stewart has been cited by another national media outlet by landing as the d3collegesports.com Running Back of the Week by USACollegeFootball.org.
The Gibbs High School product out of St. Petersburg, Fla., ran for a season-high 226 yards, or 7.8 per carry, and three touchdowns despite a 30-25 loss Saturday to undefeated Albion--ranked 22nd in the American Football Coaches' Association Division III Top 25 poll--on the road.
On the season, Stewart ranks second in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association with 794 rushing yards, 132.3 per game and 7.6 per carry as well as fourth with seven touchdowns. In MIAA games only, he averages a league-best 155 yards per contest. Nationally, he is 20th in NCAA D-III rushing.
With four games to go this fall, he is on pace to eclipse his 1,002-yard total he achieved as a freshman when he made the All-MIAA First Team.
