Yes, he’s Billy’s brother.

Henry Fessler continued the parade of Fesslers marching through Penn State when he enrolled in Happy Valley in 2018 from Erie Cathedral Prep, where he won back-to-back state championships in 2016 and 2017. Fessler redshirted in 2018, and has played an important role on the scout team in 2019 and 2020. In his redshirt freshman season, Fessler was named scout team offensive player of the week following the Indiana game, and he garnered scout team special teams player of the week after the Michigan and Illinois contests. He also has earned Academic All-Big Ten honors in both 2019 and 2020. As a smaller receiver, Fessler may not see the field on offense in 2021, but perhaps he will become a key contributor on special teams, similarly to how his brother Billy did as the primary holder on special teams during his career. Given that Fessler also played baseball and basketball in high school, it’s conceivable that he could see the field as a gunner on special teams.
