STANFORD - Tyson Stewart hasn't had a lot of experience sitting on the bench, and he didn't want to start doing it in college.
Union College offered the Lincoln County lineman an opportunity to play right away, and that's why Stewart is signing with the Bulldogs tonight.
"At the other schools I was looking at, I'd be sitting on the bench for a couple years," Stewart said. "I haven't really had to sit before, so I wanted a place I could come in and contribute."
Union was 4-7 last year, 3-6 in the Mid-South Conference, in Tommy Reid's second full season as head coach. Stewart said he will probably play either guard or tackle for the Bulldogs.
