U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. – Air Force junior Grant Snyder was named the WWPA Player of the Week for helping the Falcons to a 3-0 record last weekend, including a pair of conference victories.
In the three games at the Cadet Natatorium, Oct. 16-17, Snyder had 13 goals and five assists for 18 points. He also had two drawn exclusions, five steals and won all five sprints he took. The native of Springville, Calif., posted five goals in wins over Austin College and Concordia. In the overtime win over WWPA rival Santa Clara, he had three goals and five assists for eight points.
The honor is the second of Snyder’s career. He is the second Falcon to earn the honor this season (Sam Fuller, Sept. 15).
