After being held off of the diamond for the majority of nine months due to shoulder surgery and then a re-injury to the shoulder, the junior has come back in a big way for the Ole Miss Rebels.
Wednesday’s walk-off single was just the most recent accomplishment for Snyder, who is leading Ole Miss heading into this weekend’s three-game series at Houston with a .471 batting average and a .625 on-base percentage. (February 25, 2011, Page 8A)

That was never more evident than in 2008, when the Rebels transitioned from Zack Cozart at shortstop to a combination of Sean Stuyverson, Tim Ferguson and Evan Button and the trio committed 27 errors.
