That creates a real dilemma.
Those kickoff guys are going to lose some sleep if they don't have a guy like Jordan Stout that can put it out the back off the end zone.
The players love him, the coaches love him and again, he's just made our whole program a lot better. I'm really proud of him. Regardless of what the stats say, Lorig is pleased with the punt coverage unit Penn State is ranked No.
Lorig said that Penn State has been in more sky punt situations through four games than all of last year, which means that the offense is doing a better job of moving the ball down the field.
That is a sign of good health on a football team and obviously a sign that we should be good for years to come. They're kind of the heartbeat of the special teams units. Jon Sutherland has been amazing.
He almost blocked a punt last week He's the guy that gets everybody lined up. He comes and meets with me extra during the week to make sure he watches film -- he's telling me what [the opponent] did last year, or two years ago and if there's a possibility of them doing that again.
He's just a football junkie and takes a ton of pride in it. He's the kind of guy that you for sure want on all your stuff and then he's a special player on top of the mental side of it.
And then Isaac Lutz is the same kind of kid, man. He wants to go all the time. He came in last week and begged me to be on the punt team. Just so you know, no one in the country begs to be on punt team, that's like the one team that nobody usually wants to be on, it's kind of a thankless job.
He came in and begged me so we got him on that.
Everything that you would want about a core player on your special teams units, both of those guys are. I'm really proud of both of them.
From day one when Jordan got here at the start of fall camp, we just charted everybody's kicks They both handled it very well. I think competition has made them both a lot better. Jake was a returning starter and so the job was kind of his to lose, so I was really proud of how he competed.
Jordan also can kick short field goals, it's not like he wasn't capable of that, but there was a distinction number-wise I think every day they make each other better because they're both very talented.
There's a ton of hidden yardage in games, and it's just a way that you can really impact the entire game. What I really like about it as a defensive coach, is that I get to interact with the whole team Really, the only other person that gets to do that is the head coach Everybody talks about special teams.
I've been a lot of places. I'm throwing this number out there, and I don't know if it's fact, but I would say 5 percent of people actually do what they say they're going to do People actually doing it on a day-to-day basis, using their best players, giving it time, putting the emphasis that it really needs, is really small I think the way we do meetings, the way we interact with the players, the way that I organize practices, there's a whole bunch of things behind the scenes that no one else ever sees that I believe builds the fabric of our football team and helps strengthen Penn State football overall and I take a great deal of pride in that.
