For Pete's Sake

West Virginia quarterback touched by letter he received from K-State’s Bill Snyder

From Twitter

The Kansas State football team may have defeated West Virginia last month, but Wildcats coach Bill Snyder made it up to one Mountaineers player.

West Virginia quarterback Clint Trickett left the Wildcats’ 26-20 victory early after receiving a concussion.

Snyder learned about Trickett’s injury later and wrote a nice note to Trickett. He tweeted a photo of it:

Trickett wasn’t the only one impressed by Snyder’s act of kindness.

It’s not the first time Snyder has written to a player at a different school. Last year, he sent a note to Texas Tech tight end Jace Amaro:

Hat tip to College Spun.
