Jordan Stout Named Big Ten Punter Of The Year

Jordan Stout’s impressive 2021 regular-season campaign has come to a fitting close.

Penn State’s punter/kicker has been named the Eddleman-Fields Big Ten Punter of the Year, the conference announced Tuesday. He’s the first Nittany Lion to take home the award since its inception in 2011.

Stout’s impressive season saw him finish second in the conference with 46.5 yards per punt and with 34 punts pinned inside the 20-yard line. Additionally, he led the Big Ten with 25 punts of 50 or more yards.

The Virginia native won Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week four times this season thanks to his prowess both as a punter, kicker, and kickoff specialist. His performances against Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, and Rutgers helped Stout take home the weekly honor.

Stout has often served as a key contributor for Penn State this season, whether that be pinning opponents deep in their own territory or booting the ball through the end zone for a touchback.

Previously, he was named a finalist for the Ray Guy Award, which is annually given to the nation’s best punter. The winner for the award will be announced on Thursday, December 8 on ESPN.
