Penn State’s Jordan Stout Named a Finalist for the Ray Guy Award

Penn State punter/kicker Jordan Stout has already had a very nice week, and it’s only Tuesday.

After earning his fourth Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week Award for his play against Rutgers on Saturday, Stout has been named as one of the three finalists for the Ray Guy Award (college punter of the year).

Stout is one of the select few to handle punting, kicking and kickoff duties for his team, and he’s excelled across the board. He’s connected on 16-of-22 field goals, with a long of 52 yards, and he’s struck 32-of-33 extra points through the uprights. However, it’s been his punting that has stolen the show in some Penn State games.

Stout’s 46.5-yard punting average, which ranks second in the Big Ten and Top 10 in college football, doesn’t tell the full story. He’s pinned opponents inside the 20-yard line 31 times with only three touchbacks this season.

With a long punt of 76 yards, and 24 punts struck further than 50 yards, Stout’s powerful leg has complemented his precision to a T this season.

San Diego State’s Matt Araiza and Rutgers’ Adam Korsak have also been named finalists for the Ray Guy.

The winner will be announced at The Home Depot College Football Awards Show on Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
