Tyshawn Stewart became the second player from Susquehanna Township to commit to a D1 school. Fatorma Mulbah committed to Penn State and now Tyshawn has committed to the Maine Black Bear program. He made his announcement on twitter:

We caught up with Tyshawn and asked him about his decision:

PFN: How long have you played football?

Tyshawn: I have been playing since I was four years old, there was maybe one or two years I didn’t play, but almost my whole life

PFN: What does football mean to you:

Tyshawn: It taught me a lot, I feel like it’s been a helpful tool for me in life. I met a lot of friends playing football and it helps me become a better person and a better man. It’s mentally and physically challenging and you have to be ready to be challenged every day.

PFN: Why did you choose to commit to the Black Bears?

Tyshawn: They recruit a lot of players from my area. That’s important, plus I like the staff and the attitude of the players. 

PFN: Who was your biggest influence at Maine, who recruited you?

Tyshawn: Coach Ryan was a big influence, also former Township player Jaquan Blair, he plays up there. I was able to talk to him and he helped me learn about the school and coaches and what they’re about. 

PFN: What was the recruiting process like for you?

Its definitely stressful but exciting at the same time.  I think getting the chance to visit all the schools, the different atmospheres both in football and academically was fun. 

PFN: What role did your high school coaches play in your decision:

Tyshawn: I been on varsity since I was a freshman so I really got a lot of time to bond with them.  They really put the time and effort in to make sure I needed what I’d need to get to the next level.

PFN: What position were you recruited for?

Tyshawn: Inside linebacker

PFN: Do you know what you’d like to study?

Tyshawn: I’m leaning toward kinesiology, sports medicine

PFN: What role did your parents play in your decision?

Tyshawn: My mom, she’s always around.  She only missed like one of my games. She always makes sure I’m ready. She’s real excited, she’ll be going to my games. 

PFN: Tell everyone out there in the Black Bear Den something they’d never know about you until you told them:

Tyshawn: I’m just a “chill” kinda guy. My friends, they’d tell you I’m very laid back.  

PFN: Who is the person who most influenced you in your football career?

Tyshawn: That’s a hard question. I mean, my sisters boyfriend Elijah Burno, he always helpin me. I always work out with him, he always keeps pushing me.  He plays at Western Illinois but he’s transferring to Maine so that’s another good connection for me. 

PFN: What is it you’d like all your high school team mates and fans to know about your decision that you might have a hard time saying in person?

Tyshawn: Always work hard, never give up. You have to push yourself, if it’s something that’s going to challenge you it’s not going to be easy. You have to push yourself, and if you have the right attitude you’ll succeed.
