Before PSU: Stahl was a two-time all-conference performer at Baldwin High School in the Pittsburgh Area. A quarterback, Stahl ended his high school career with 2,543 passing yards and 24 touchdowns, also rushing for more than 1,000 yards and 16 touchdowns.
2020: Stahl didn’t see any game action in his first season at PSU. But he impressed James Franklin and Penn State’s coaching staff enough to be named Developmental Squad Offensive Player of the Year along with offensive linemen Nick Dawkins and Will Knutsson.
2021: Stahl’s biggest clam to fame from his Penn State career thus far took place during the regular-season’s second-to-last game. With Penn State ravaged by a campus-wide flu virus and the status’ of first-string QB Sean Clifford and second-stringer Christian Veilleux in question, Stahl almost started the game for Penn State, James Franklin revealed after the game.
But Clifford ended up starting, and when he proved ineffective— largely due to sickness— Veilleux relieved him, and Penn State ended up winning 28-0 on Senior Day at Beaver Stadium. Stahl was Penn State’s Developmental Squad Offensive Player of the Year for the second season in a row, sharing the honor with defensive end Dan Vasey.
2022: Stahl switched to receiver before the season, appearing in two games.
Where he stands: Stahl is unlikely to receive a ton of playing time for Penn State, but his leadership and reputation for performing well in practices should be beneficial to the squad as it goes for a Big Ten championship in 2023.
