Germany: Dresden Monarchs sign former Michigan State WR Darrell Stewart Jr.

German Football League semifinalists in 2019, the Dresden Monarchs, have signed former Michigan State WR Darrell Stewart Jr..

The 6’2′, 216 pound, 24 year old from Houston, Texas, was a three-year starter for the Michigan State Spartans and finished his career with 150 receptions for 1,640 yards and seven touchdowns in 43 games. He was ranked among the Spartans all-time leaders in receptions (3rd with 150), receptions per game (9th with 3.49) and receiving yards (tied for 23rd with 1,640 yards). He also recorded 2,363 all-purpose yards (1,640 receiving; 551 kick return; 152 rushing; 20 punt return). He was also one of the most consistent wide receivers on the team with at least one reception in the last 33 games he played and three straight years with at least 48 receptions (50 in 2017; 48 in 2018; 49 in 2019). He was a criminal justice major but interestingly won the team’s Doug Weaver “Oil Can” Award (team humorist) three years in a row (2017-19).

Stewart spent most of the 2020 preseason with the Green Bay Packers and then was picked up by the Carolina Panthers but released in late September of last year.
