Kansas State football didn’t have the season it envisioned with a 7-5 finish, but the Wildcats capped off 2017 with a thrilling, final-second victory over Iowa State last week.
And as he so often has done, Wildcats coach Bill Snyder put pen to paper following the game.
Snyder wrote a letter to the Kansas State student body in the K-State Collegian on Thursday, 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 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.
