Germany: Ravensburg Razorbacks sign LB/DB Dejvion Steward

The Ravensburg Razorbacks, entering their second year in the German Football League, have made a key addition to their defense with the signing of Tiffin University Dragons (NCAA Div. II) linebacker/safety Dejvion Steward for the 2022 season.

The Razorbacks finished 2021, their first season in the GFL, fifth in the South division with a 5-5 record.

The versatile defender is happy with the move:

“I am thankful for this opportunity. I believe the Razorbacks front office are putting together a strong team that’s destined for success.”

Steward spent the 2021 season, his third in Europe, with the Cologne Crocodiles and in 10 games recorded 46 tackles, 9 tackles for loss, 3 sacks, 6 PBUs and 6 PDs. He had originally planned to go to Germany in 2020, signing with the Kiel Baltic Hurricanes before the pandemic cancelled the GFL season. Steward finished his second season in Europe in 2019 with the Seinäjoki Crocodiles in Finland’s Maple League recording 75 tackles good for fourth in the league, and three interceptions. The year prior, in 2018, he played for the Bolzano Giants in Italy helping them reach the Italian championship game where they lost to the Milano Seamen. He finished the year fourth on the team with 36.5 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks and 7 pbu.

The 6’0, 205-pound, soon-to-be 29 year old Steward is a native of Detroit, Michigan and played his college career at Tiffin University. He started 23 games for Tiffin throughout his college career and finished his senior season with 87 tackles, 8 pbu and 3 sacks.
