Jordan Stout Named Ray Guy Award Finalist

Penn State football star special teamer Jordan Stout has been named a finalist for the Ray Guy Award, the team announced Tuesday morning.

The Ray Guy Award is presented annually to college football’s most efficient punter. Stout was selected to this group alongside San Diego State’s Matt Araiza and Rutgers’ Adam Korsak. The winner will be announced on Thursday, December 8 on ESPN.

Stout has been very successful this season for the Nittany Lions. He’s hit 72.7% of his field goals, a big jump from last year’s 40.0%. Most notably, however, Stout is averaging 46.7 yards on his punts and has pinned opponents inside their own 20-yard line on 31 occasions. He’s also nailed 24 punts at least 50 yards.

Winning this award would add more to Stout’s already impressive resume. He’s already earned Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week four times. Stout first earned the honor after an impressive performance against Wisconsin, then won it after the Indiana and Michigan games. Most recently, the senior captain collected the award after this past weekend’s win over Rutgers.

Although the Ray Guy Award has never been won by a Nittany Lion since its introduction in 2000, Stout is not the first Penn Stater to be named a finalist for the award. He joins Jeremy Kapinos on this list, who made it in 2006.
