Stuver signed for Austin FC as free agent on December 28, 2020 and established himself as the team's starting goalkeeper during its inaugural season. During the 2022 MLS season with Austin FC, Stuver played a total of 3,008 minutes across 34 appearances, all of which were starts. Stuver made 100 saves and saved 4 out of 12 penalty kicks faced between the regular season and playoffs, including two (2) saves in a shootout to help Austin defeat Real Salt Lake in the Club’s first-ever MLS Cup Playoffs match. He tied for eighth in MLS in total saves, and second in the league in successful clearances with 33.

He signed a new contract with Austin FC on November 21, 2022, keeping him in Verde & Back through the end of the 2025 season with an option for 2026.

Stuver has been an exemplary community-engaged athlete throughout his time in Austin, and in 2022 became the first-ever MLS player to be named a nominee for the ESPN Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award at the ESPYs. Stuver was named a finalist for MLS Works Humanitarian of the Year in both 2021 and 2022 for his community-based advocacy and fundraising across the Central Texas region. Stuver is actively involved with Current Initiatives’ The Laundry Project, an organization which holds events to provide free laundry services and materials to low-income families. Stuver has led nine such events in just over a year since arriving in Central Texas, including one to provide relief for families in Uvalde, and organized multiple supply drives to collect donations.
