Quincy Stewart named head football coach at San Antonio’s Sam Houston High School

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — There’s a new head football coach at Sam Houston High School.

Quincy Stewart, who has been the linebackers coach at Duncanville High School will take over the Hurricanes.

Stewart is a native of Tyler where as a player he won the Class 5A state championship in 1994.

He went on the play at Louisiana Tech University before he suited up for several NFL teams including the 49ers, Jets, Broncos and Vikings. He also played for the Edmonton Eskimos in the Canadian Football League, winning the Grey Cup in 2005.

Stewart began his coaching career in 2009.

Even though he attended school in Tyler, he has ties to his new home. His wife is a 1989 graduate of Sam Houston.

“My wife was at Sam Houston during the heyday when Coach (R.A.) Johnson was there. We need to let people know, we are still here. The pride is still there. The work ethic is still there. We just have to unlock it. Our goal is to not only go to the playoffs, but to excel in the playoffs. With the community, the school and coaching staff, I know we can get this done.”

Sam Houston had made the state playoffs 8 of the last 10 years but didn’t get there last fall. That brought a six straight season streak of making the postseason to an end.
