Stewart ‘unselfish’ for Mustangs

Jackson Stewart has seen the highs and lows of high school football. His sophomore year, the Mustangs started the season with eight straight wins. A year ago, in his junior campaign, they only managed two wins.

Through it all, Stewart, a senior fullback/linebacker, has maintained the same focus. 

“I want to contribute to being a winning team no matter what that means,” Stewart said. “If that means playing a different position or whatever it is, I want to help win. I am not the biggest guy out there, or the strongest, or the fastest. I have to make up for that in the way I play and compete.”

When he’s not competing on the field, Stewart is often watching football or other sports, or he’s out in the wilderness hunting. The senior is a student council officer. He also participates in National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta, Beta Club and Spanish Honor Society. 

“Jackson is a great representative of Central Arkansas Christian,” said CAC Head Coach Tommy Shoemaker. “He always knows what to do, where to be and gives his best effort. He’s a very smart young man with tremendous character. He’s very unselfish and cares about others. I expect him to be a positive leader on a very young team.”

Stewart attends Windsong Church of Christ. After his senior year, he plans to attend college and major in cybersecurity. 

“I want to be remembered as someone who helped lead and win some games for his team,” Stewart said.
