As a junior, Muehlstein racked up over 2,200 yards and 23 scores in his first year as a starter for the Eagles earning 9-3A Second Team All-District honors. He reports a 4.5 40-yard dash.
Muehlstein is a gritty performer. He is the player that his team leans on and opposing defenses key on. He has a good arm and throws well outside the pocket and with a rolling pocket. He is calm under pressure. As a runner, he is not super quick but is a patient and powerful and he has enough athleticism to be a threat to pick up yardage on the ground when needed. He has nice natural size and is well built.
