Although Brent Pry’s move to Virginia Tech has dominated the news on the Penn State front this Tuesday, there was some more positive news for Nittany Lions fans. Jordan Stout has been named the Eddleman-Fields Big Ten Punter of the Year. He is the first Penn State punter to win the award since its birth in 2011. 

Stout is also Penn State’s kicker but has been most impressive punting. He’s been named Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week four times this season and finished second in the conference with 46.5 yards per punt. Pro Football Focus rates him as the best punter in the country with a 93.1 grade, the only punter with a rating north of 85. 

Stout is also a finalist for the Ray Guy Award for the nation’s top punter. Those results will be announced Dec. 8.
