We determine the restriction of the Steinberg character of a finite symplectic group of odd characteristic to its maximal parabolic subgroup stabilizing a line. We relate this restriction to the tensor product of a Weil character with the Steinberg character. As an application we prove that Donovan's conjecture has a positive answer for unipotent l-blocks of the six-dimensional symplectic groups of odd characteristic when l > 3.
