Bill Snyder added yet another laurel to his long lists of honors Sunday, as he was one of 10 people and one team inducted as part of the St. Joseph (Mo.) Area Sports Hall of Fame's inaugural class.

Born in St. Joseph, Snyder went on to become one of the greatest coaches in college football history in his 27 seasons at Kansas State. Snyder finished his time at K-State with an overall record of 215-117-1, which included Big 12 championships in 2003 and 2012. Lifting the Wildcats’ program from obscurity into a consistent winner, Snyder was head coach at the time of the team’s 300th, 400th and 500th all-time victories.
