To some rather sobering news out of Niceville Tuesday concerning Northwest Florida State Head basketball coach Bruce Stewart. In recent days coach Stewart was diagnosed with a brain tumor, Tuesday he found out that tumor was stage 4 glioblastoma, a very serious condition to say the least. Coach Stewart will begin radiation and chemotherapy next week.
The coach releasing this statement today through the school quote "I want to express a "from-the-heart thanks" for the many prayers from the Raider Nation, NWF, local churches, community and colleagues in the coaching profession. Their prayers are much needed and appreciated." unquote. Stewart's coach the Raiders 13 seasons, with a 317-82 record, conference titles, 3 state titles, including last season when his team finished 6th nationally. Our thoughts and prayers are with Coach Stewart and his family.
