WT's Steward plays role in win

West Texas A&M coach Don Carthel was not that pleased with how his defense played in the season opener vs. Mesa State. However, he said linebacker Max Steward, end Eugene Sims and strong safety Curtis Jefferson were "hungry to play when we looked at film." Steward, who last played for the Buffs during their 2005 Lone Star Conference championship season, was so into the game that when starter Eldon Grimslid was sent back onto the field late in the game, Steward refused to come out.
"(Grimslid) told me, 'Max won't let me play,'" Carthel said. "It meant a lot to have that kind of leadership out there."
Steward had eight tackles, one for a loss of eight yards.
