Bill Snyder thanks Kansas State student body with hand-written letter

Kansas State football didn’t have the season it envisioned after a 7-5 finish, but the Wildcats capped off 2017 with a thrilling final-second victory over Iowa State on Nov. 25.

And as he so often has done, head coach Bill Snyder put a pen to paper following the game.

Snyder wrote a letter to the Kansas student body through the K-State Collegian on Friday, thanking students for not giving up on Saturday after the Wildcats trailed the Cyclones 19-7 early in the fourth quarter.

“I’ve stated before how very special our student body has been in its relationship with our football program, and you continue to surpass expectations. You didn’t give up when we were two scores down and led us to back-to-back scores to be victorious. Please know how much your loyal and caring support is appreciated.” — Bill Snyder

Snyder, 78, debuted as Kansas State’s head coach in 1989. After initially retiring following the 2005 season, Kansas State rehired Snyder in time for the 2009 season. Snyder owns a 209-110-1 record with the Wildcats.
