The Walk-On

Inside Northwestern's Rise from Cellar Dweller to Big Ten Champ

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


This inspiring true story takes you inside a major college football program from a unique point of view: the walk-on. For decades, Northwestern University finished in the bottom of the Big Ten Conference. But new head coach Gary Barnett brought a winning attitude to Evanston and engineered one of the greatest turnarounds in college sports history, leading Northwestern to two Big Ten championships. Matt Stewart's experience as a safety mirrored the team. As a freshman, he was fifth string. But with hard work, determination and self-belief, Matt rose up the depth chart and his efforts were rewarded in a remarkable way. Take a journey inside the Northwestern locker room as Matt reveals how he transformed his mind and body into becoming a successful Division I football player. From a gambling scandal to the death of a star player to the Rose Bowl, "The Walk-On" is a riveting account of how a small school captured the nation's attention and brought hope to underdogs everywhere.

Customer Reviews


What a great read! Stewart relates his experiences very well. This is a must read for any athlete with the desire compete at a high level

The walk-on

An extraordinary presentation! Particularly enjoyable for an old Cat who played S from '65-67. Hearty congratulations to "big Stew" for his great accomplishments, and particularly for unashamedly sharing his experiences with us.

Our future rests in the hands of fine young men like Matt. I strongly recommend that you invest a modest $10 in this fine book.
