Penn State long snapper Chris Stoll has been with the program since Saquon Barkley was still scoring touchdowns for the Nittany Lions.
He plans on coming back for one more year.
”I would like to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for blessing me with so many things,” Stoll wrote in a Twitter statement, “including the opportunity to continue my education at Penn State, to continue my l dream of playing football at such an amazing university, and to be with my brothers on the field for one last ride.”

Stoll, a Westerville, Ohio, native, came to Penn State in 2017. He redshirted his freshman season and didn’t get any playing time in his true-freshman year. In 2019, he became the Nittany Lions’s starting long snapper and has never missed a game in the three seasons since.
If all goes according to plan, Stoll will join quarterback Sean Clifford and safety Jonathan Sutherland as sixth-year seniors in 2022.
Stoll ended his statement by expressing his excitement to play with his teammates for one more year.
”I couldn’t be more excited to do it with a group of guys who love the game and all that comes with it,” Stoll wrote at the end of his statement. “Let’s get to work.”
