CLEAVELAND – Jamestown High School grad Stephen Carlson scored his first NFL touchdown for the Cleveland Browns Thursday night at FirstEnergy Stadium.

The rookie tight end ran the 8-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Baker Mayfield that quickly became the talk of the town.

Undrafted in the NFL draft this year, Carlson was signed as a priority undrafted free agent by the Cleveland Browns in April.



He was on the Brown’s practice squad since September 2019 since his promotion.

Cleveland defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 21 to 7 on Thursday Night Football.

Carlson was a two-time first-team all-state player in his junior and senior seasons at Jamestown High School.

In his senior year of college, Carlson had 51 receptions for 683 yards and five touchdowns for the Princeton Tigers.

Overall, he recorded 125 catches for 1,632 yards and 16 TDs.
