Former Quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers
Kordell Stewart Biography
Nicknamed -Slash-, Kordell Stewart was born October 16, 1972 in Marrero, Louisiana and is a former NFL quarterback who most recently played for the Baltimore Ravens. Stewart attended the University of Colorado and was drafted 60th in the 1995 NFL draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Playing for Colorado in 1994 he completed a Hail Mary pass to beat the University of Michigan 27-26, a play known as "The Miracle in Michigan." Among NFL quarterbacks, his 38 rushing touchdowns ranks second all-time, behind Steve Young's 43.
Pittsburgh Steelers radio announcer Myron Cope gave Stewart the nickname "Slash" due to his abilities as a utility player willing to play other positions such as running back/wide receiver/punter.
After confining him to many utility roles during the 1995 season, when the Steelers made it to Super Bowl XXX only to lose to the Dallas Cowboys, the team gave Stewart the opportunity to compete for the starting quarterback position in 1996. Following a preseason battle, Bill Cowher named Jim Miller as the Steelers' starting quarterback and kept Stewart in his "Slash" role. Miller struggled at Jacksonville on opening day and was replaced by Mike Tomczak for the rest of the season. In a December 1996 game against the Carolina Panthers, Stewart set an NFL record for longest touchdown run by a quarterback with an 80-yard rush.
