Before Nebraska (Millard South HS)

As a senior, Stenger was an honorary captain of the Omaha World-Herald All-Nebraska team, making the squad as a defensive back. He was also a Lincoln Journal Star first-team Super-State selection as an athlete. Stenger quarterbacked Millard South to an undefeated regular season and the No. 1 seed in the state playoffs. He threw for nearly 1,400 yards and 19 touchdowns and did not have an interception all season. He set a Class A state record with six touchdown passes in a first-round playoff matchup with Omaha North. He also rushed for nearly 600 yards and 11 touchdowns. Stenger was also an honorary captain of the World-Herald’s All-Metro team. Patriots’ head coach Andy Means, who coached Millard South for 36 years, told the World-Herald that Stenger was arguably the best football player he coached in his tenure at Millard South.
A three-star recruit, Stenger was rated as the No. 5 player in Nebraska by 247Sports. He chose Nebraska over Kansas State.
