Marvin “Moose” Stewart

Marvin “Moose” Stewart was one of the original LSU football All-Americans along with Gaynell Tinsley, who led the Tigers to Southeastern Conference titles in 1935 and 1936. Stewart was considered one of the greatest centers in LSU football history, earning All-America honors from the Helms Foundation in 1935 and 1936 under head coach Bernie Moore. He lettered for the Tigers for three seasons, earning All-America honors his final two years and All-SEC honors his senior season. Stewart and Tinsley steered the Tigers to a 9-2 record in 1935 and a perfect 5-0 conference record that year.

In 1993, upon the celebration of the 100th anniversary of LSU football, Stewart was named as the center on the Early Years Team of the Century. He is also a member of the LSU Athletic Hall of Fame.

Stewart lived in Baton Rouge most of his life, but moved to California with his family in the late 1990s.
