Stewart is the fourth local recruit in Jeff Quinn's first class at Buffalo, Quinn has stated his first focus in recruiting was to assert UB's profile in its own back yard. Stewart joins John Kling (Depew), Bob Blodgett (Honeoye Falls-Lima), and All time WNY TD leader Joe Licata (Williamsville South).
Coach Quinn wasted no time trying to get Stewart to stay in Western New York, Stewart was among the first offers extended by Jeff Quinn back in February.
"They have been contacting me the whole time and seeing how I'm doing with my grades, SATs, and everything else. They really care about me so that's the right school for me." -- Dale Stewart about his dealings with the Buffalo Recruiting Staff
