I was honored to join the team that documented K-State’s head coach Bill Snyder as he was inducted into the National Football Foundation Hall of Fame at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City on December 8, 2015. Snyder is just the fourth person in the history of college football to be enshrined as an active coach.

Snyder, the architect of the “greatest turnaround in the history of college football,” joined 15 other members of the Induction Class of 2015 that includes Nebraska linebacker Trev Alberts, Oklahoma linebacker Brian Bosworth, Arizona State linebacker Bob Breunig, Millsaps defensive lineman Sean Brewer, Pittsburgh offensive tackle Ruben Brown, Florida split end Wes Chandler, Notre Dame split end Thom Gatewood, Yale running back Dick Jauron, Michigan State halfback Clinton Jones, Washington offensive tackle Lincoln Kennedy, Michigan running back Rob Lytle, Marshall quarterback Michael Payton, Kentucky defensive end Art Still, Texas Tech linebacker Zach Thomas and Texas running back Ricky Williams.

K-State is bowl bound for the sixth consecutive season after the Wildcats defeated West Virginia 24-23 in Manhattan, Kansas on December 5, 2015. K-State will play Arkansas at the AutoZone Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tennessee on January 2, 2016.
