Penn State Football’s Chris Stoll Returning For 2022 Season

Three days removed from the end of Penn State football’s 2021 campaign, the Nittany Lion special teams room has received some positive news.

Long snapper Chris Stoll announced via Twitter Tuesday morning that he’s returning to Happy Valley for the 2022 season.

“After many thoughtful and meaningful conversations with my family, coaches and teammates, I am excited to announce that I will be coming back for my final year of eligibility for the 2022 football season,” Stoll wrote.

“All of our hard work this coming offseason will pay off tremendously. 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’s decision to remain in Happy Valley gives the Nittany Lions’ special teams a huge boost amid some changes on that phase of the ball. Former Boise State special teams coordinator Stacy Collins was hired Tuesday to replace Joe Lorig, who left Penn State for the same position at Oregon earlier in the week.

Meanwhile, star punter/kicker Jordan Stout shared Tuesday afternoon he’s officially leaving Happy Valley for the NFL Draft.

After redshirting his freshman year and not seeing the field the following season, Stoll became the starting long snapper in 2019 and was recognized with the Outstanding Run-On Award at the team’s end of season banquet. The following preseason, Stoll was awarded with a full scholarship.

This season, Stoll was nominated for the Burlsworth Trophy, an honor annually awarded to college football’s most outstanding player who began their career as a walk-on. He also assisted in Jordan Stout’s Big Ten Punter Of The Year campaign.

Stoll is one of two Nittany Lions to announce Tuesday that they’ll be returning for the 2022 season, along with defensive tackle PJ Mustipher.
