My sincere thank you and immense appreciation for the role you have played in providing me the opportunity to have been a part of these 200 victories. The true victory, however, is what so many of you have meant to our football program and our university — truly unique and special.

None of this would have happened without the caring commitment of the young men who have played here, all past and present coaches and their families, as well as mine, our support staff, student body and our university faculty, staff and leadership.

To the people of the Manhattan community and K-Staters all across our state, nation and world — you are appreciated beyond words.

Warm regards,

Bill Snyder
