This hire blows me away.
A little insight; Coach Stewart was Mill Creek HS’s DC my freshman and sophomore years at Mill Creek. My sophomore year was when Colquitt beat MCHS in the State Semis on their way to their state championship that year (New WR coach Josh Crawford was Colquitt’s OC a year prior - fun fact). That was the game where Colquitt’s HC bashed his skull into his players helmet and was bleeding on the sideline.
Coach Stewart was offered the Head Coaching job for North Gwinnett the next year, Mill Creek lost to Grayson in the state semi’s on Grayson’s path to the state championship (which some of us will attribute to rival North Gwinnett stealing one of our best coaches). Then Mill Creek kind of fell off a cliff for a year or two.
North Gwinnett proceeded to follow Grayson as the next State Champions in 2018, my senior year. Coach Stewart at the helm.
Our other coaches with HS experience in Georgia have lots of South Georgia roots, very strong connections outside of the Metro area for sure. But Coach Stewart is a Gwinnett County powerhouse - was Jared Ivey’s HC. (Barrett Carter starts as ILB for Clemson, was the 5* from north we were targeting at the time). Between Stewart and Kenyatta, there’s some serious connections to the high athletic and academic caliber of Gwinnett county. This is beyond exciting.
