Mike Snow

Class of 1978 / Inducted 2015 / Football

Mike Snow is a 1978 graduate of Emory & Henry College who played for the Wasps football team as a tight end for three years, after transferring to E&H from the University of Virginia. Mike’s career at E&H occurred just as the College was transitioning to Division III. E&H joined the Old Dominion Athletic Conference in 1976, and Mike joined the team in 1975.

In 1975 he made 11 catches for 155 yards, averaging 14.1 yards per catch. In 1976, he caught 27 passes for 379 yards and 14 yards per reception. His senior year, he scored four touchdowns on 40 receptions for 572 yards, an average of 14.3 yards per catch.

He has 50 career points to his name, and in 1977 he made First-Team All-ODAC honors and was named the team’s Offensive Player of the Year.

He holds school records for the position of tight end with single season receptions numbering 40, and career receptions numbering 78. He also holds the records for single-season yards and career yards at the position of tight end with 572 yards in 1977 and 1,106 career yards. He actually has more catches and yards than another E&H player at that same position who was a two-time All-American. Mike simply came along at a time before keeping stats was a priority.

These days, Mike can be found volunteering on the sidelines for the Wasps as an assistant coach for the football team.
