Fairmont State University is honoring the late Bill Stewart by creating a football endowment.
The Fairmont State Pierpont Foundation has established the Bill Stewart Football Endowment Fund.
The fund will be used to provide a scholarship to a senior FSU football player.
The endowment is funded by 13 of Stewart's closest friends.
They collective pledged more than $65,000.
Deacon Duvall, Stewart's coach at FSU, will be the honorary chair to get support from the public.
They hope to give the scholarship each year.
