ONE ON ONE: New BHS coach Michael Stewart is rarin' to go

In what will be his first extended interview with local media, Michael Stewart will sit down with The Californian's Robert Price for a special installment of TBC Media's "One on One" webcast to talk about his new job — head football coach at Bakersfield High School.

Stewart, a BHS graduate, brings a diverse resume to the job: After starring for the Drillers, he played safety for the Fresno State Bulldogs and then was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams; after seven years in L.A., he joined the Miami Dolphins. In his post-NFL life, Stewart has been a financial advisor, a life coach and an assistant head coach at a Southern California high school.

Stewart will talk to Price about his expectations for the team, his approach to motivation and the legacy of the Driller football program.

The webcast airs at noon Friday, and the on-demand video will be available afterward on
