Snapp Remembered By His Colleagues

Several leaders of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) have released statements on the passing of Steve Snapp, who worked at Ohio State from 1973 to 2011, much of that time, as a bridge between the media and the university. Although, his influence was clearly felt beyond the OSU community…

“Steve Snapp was the ultimate professional who represented Ohio State and his profession with great dignity and class. He will be missed by the many athletic administrators, coaches, student-athletes, media representatives and colleagues around the country in sports information who’s lives he touched in such a positive fashion.”
— Doug Vance, CoSIDA Executive Director

“We all appreciate Steve’s tremendous service to Ohio State athletics, and to the media and visiting coaches, staffs and student-athletes who came to compete at Ohio State. Our thoughts are with his family and colleagues at this time.”
— Eric McDowell (Union N.Y.), 2014-15 CoSIDA President

“Steve Snapp was a forerunner in our athletic communications who brought prestige to our profession. He was excellent at building relationships and he was persuasive in introducing Ohio State to the national media. I learned a great deal from him as an example and as a coworker.”
— Shelly Poe (Auburn University), CoSIDA immediate past president and former Ohio State staff member
