The Absecon resident appeared in one game with Green Bay, completing 5-of-7 passes for 11 yards during the 2017 season with the Packers.

While at Holy Spirit, Callahan recorded 3,330 passing yards and 40 TDs and went 12-0 as a senior. He helped lead the Spartans to a state title in 2010 and was named all-conference and All-South Jersey.

At Wesley, Callahan excelled, throwing for 5,063 yards and 55 TDs as a senior, becoming the first NCAA Division III quarterback ever to throw for 5,000 yards in a season.
