Stepped Footer?

I finished laying block for my basement for my new house construction. I have a bedroom on one side of it that will just have a crawl space under it. I dug out approximately 3 feet on the outside of the basement wall when I dug it. Is a stepped footer the only way to go across this to lay block for the bedroom? I know the footer has to be on undisturbed soil but could I backfill and tamp it down every few inches? Or is it possible to Span it with a beam? The bedroom is 16' perpendicular to the basement wall.
