Oklahoma St. kicker, last week’s hero, gets letter from K-State’s Snyder
Kansas State coach Bill Snyder is legendary for writing handwritten notes to opposing players who perform well against his Wildcats. Oklahoma State kicker Ben Grogran became the latest to receive such a letter.
Even though Grogan prevented Snyder’s team from completing a road upset of No. 21 Oklahoma State with a last-second field goal to give the Cowboys a 36-34 win, it didn’t stop Snyder from congratulating the junior kicker from Arlington, Texas.
I have so much respect for Coach Synder and the Kansas State Football program, so cool for him to do this! pic.twitter.com/E6rhnoMHroArticle continues below ...

Snyder, 73, explained a couple of years ago on a Big 12 conference call why he takes the time to write the letters, always doing so with a K-State purple-ink pen.
“I do it after virtually every ballgame to young people who I thought played well against us or to coaches for their preparation," he said.
Grogan certainly appears to have appreciated it.
