Penn State Punter Barney Amor Put On Full Scholarship

Two-time Super Bowl champion and former New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning visited the Penn State football team this week and made a special announcement when he revealed that punter Barney Amor will be on full scholarship.

The team showed lots of excitement after the surprise announcement rewarding Amor for his hard work and dedication. Manning made the announcement following practice while offering advice to the team on what it takes to win a championship and play at the highest level.

“Whenever we have an opportunity to have somebody here like this with us, I want to take advantage of it,” Franklin said.

Manning’s brief introduction was followed by insight into his mindset and what it takes to bring a team together. He finished off by making the announcement on Franklin’s behalf.

Amor, a sixth-year senior, played four years at Colgate before transferring to Penn State and sitting behind current Ravens punter Jordan Stout. He has an extra year of eligibility due to COVID-19 and could take on a bigger role this season.
