A Penn State Nittany Lion is receiving national recognition following their important opening week win over Wisconsin.

Punter Jordan Stout was named the Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week on Monday morning.

The senior captain averaged a career-high 53.9 yards on his seven punt attempts vs. the Badgers. That was the second-highest single-game average for a Penn State punter, falling just short of Ralph Giacomarro, who averaged 54.7 yards per punt in a game at Syracuse in 1981. One of Stout’s five punts went for a career-high of 76 yards.

Along with the tremendous job he did punting, Stout also connected on a 24-yard field. That kick was important because it came in the 4th quarter and tied the game at 10 all.

This is the first time in his college career that Stout has been named the Special Teams Player of the Week.

Stout and his teammates are back in action this Saturday when they host Ball State.
