Michigan’s Andrew Stueber Named Walter Camp Connecticut Player of the Year

University of Michigan senior offensive lineman Andrew Stueber  (Darien, CT) has been selected as Walter Camp’s 2019 Connecticut Player of the Year. 

The award is presented to the top college football player who is a resident and/or played scholastically in the state of Connecticut. The award is voted on by the Walter Camp Football Foundation membership.

An Honorable Mention All-Big Ten selection, Stueber started at right tackle and right guard for the Wolverines this fall.   Stueber is the first Michigan player to earn Walter Camp Connecticut Player of Year honors. Stueber did not take any penalties and surrendered just one sack among four total pressures all season. He was awarded a pass-blocking efficiency grade of 98.3, among the highest scores in the Big Ten.

An Academic All-Big Ten honoree, Stueber is currently enrolled in the Stephen M. Ross School of Business pursuing a degree in business administration.

A native of Darien, Stueber attended Darien High School was coached by Rob Trifone.  He led the Blue Wave to two state titles (2015 and 2016) was a two-time Walter Camp All-Connecticut first team honoree.

Stueber joins the members of the 2020 Walter Camp All-America First and Second teams, Player of the Year DeVonta Smith (Alabama) and Coach of the Year Jamey Chadwell (Coastal Carolina) as the 2020 honorees.

Walter Camp, “The Father of American football,” first selected an All-America team in 1889. Camp – a former Yale University athlete and football coach – is also credited with developing play from scrimmage, set plays, the numerical assessment of goals and tries and the restriction of play to eleven men per side. The Walter Camp Football Foundation – a New Haven-based all-volunteer group – was founded in 1967 to perpetuate the ideals of Camp and to continue the tradition of selecting annually an All-America team.  Visit www.waltercamp.org for more information.
