Penn State Long Snapper Chris Stoll Wins Mannelly Award

Penn State long snapper Chris Stoll was recognized as the nation’s best long snapper, receiving the Patrick Mannelly Award Saturday night. He was one of ten finalists for the award.

Stoll is the first Penn State player to ever win the award. He was named to the Mannelly Award Watch List last season.

Entering his fourth season as Penn State’s primary long snapper, the sixth-year long snapper started all 12 games for the Nittany Lions and was voted a team captain before the season. He has appeared in 46 games throughout his Penn State career.

The Mannelly Award was created in 2019 to benefit Bernie’s Book Bank, a non-profit organization that distributes books to underprivileged children throughout Chicagoland. Stoll is the fourth recipient of the award, following John Shannon (Notre Dame), Thomas Fletcher (Alabama), and Cal Adomitis (Pittsburgh).

Stoll and Penn State will take on No. 8 Utah in the 2023 Rose Bowl at 5 p.m. on Monday, January 2 in Pasadena, California. The game will be broadcasted on ESPN.
