Junior Cornerback Selected to Inaugural Class

Junior Mark Snoddy

IRVING, Texas -- Washington and Lee junior cornerback Mark Snoddy (Atlanta, Ga./Westminster) has been inducted into the National Football Foundation's (NFF) inaugural National Honor Society.

The NFF's National Honor Society recognizes collegiate football players for their outstanding accomplishments in the classroom and on the playing field. The class is made up of 348 players from 195 school across all three NCAA Divisions and the NAIA.

A chemistry major, Snoddy is a W&L and ODAC Scholar-Athlete and a two-time member of the CoSIDA Academic All-District team.

On the field, Snoddy is a two-time First Team All-ODAC performer, a 2006 Second Team All-South Region honoree, and the runner-up for the 2006 Dudley Award for the Virginia College Division Player of the Year. He led the ODAC and ranked among the national leaders with nine interceptions and 20 passes defensed. Snoddy totaled 32 tackles this fall and set a new record for career interceptions (17), breaking a record which stood for 55 seasons.

Washington and Lee finished the 2006 season with a 7-4 overall record and a 5-1 mark in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference. The Generals advanced to the NCAA Division III playoffs for the first time in school history and played in their first postseason game since the 1951 Gator Bowl.
