Penn State punter/kicker Jordan Stout has won the Eddleman-Fields Punter of the Year award, given to the Big Ten's top punter.

Stout came to Penn State as a transfer from Virginia Tech and primarily handled kickoffs and long field goals in 2019. He took over punting duties in 2020 and became a star at the position in 2021.

Stout booted 62 balls for an average of 46.5 yards per punt. 34 of his punts were downed inside an opponent's 20-yard line and 25 of his punts went for at least 50 yards. He was previously named a finalist for the Ray Guy Award for his performance this season.
