As a Recruit

Broderick Snoddy was recruited by former QB/BB Coach Brian Bohannon and committed to the Yellow Jackets on Nov. 20, 2011 over other reported offers from Ole Miss and Georgia Southern.

As a player in high school, Snoddy rushed for 1,150 yards and 18 touchdowns. He was named the 49th-best prospect in the state of Georgia by the AJC and all-area in 2010. He was also selected to play in the North-South Game.

In addition to playing football in high school, Snoddy was also a track star, winning the 3A State Championship for the 100 meter and 200 meter.

On the Field

He redshirted in his true freshman season and was a B-back as a redshirt freshman. That season, he played there and on special teams, where he finished with 13 carries for 50 yards and a touchdown and nine tackles.

As a sophomore, Snoddy remained a back-up at B-back and rushed the ball 24 times for 150 yards. He also added in two kick returns which totaled 29 yards.

As a junior, Snoddy made the transition over to A-back and saw his career take off a little bit. Snoddy appeared in 10 games and started three of them before going down with a leg injury in the Clemson game and having to miss the rest of the season. He finished the season with 28 carries for 281 yards (a team-best 10.1 yards/carry) and three touchdowns. He also had three catches for 100 yards.

Coming into his senior season recovering from his broken leg, there were some mixed expectations for Snoddy. He came in and had a solid year, but only played in eight games, starting four of them. He finished the season with 20 carries for 184 yards and a touchdown.

Off the Field

In addition to being a solid A-back for the football team, Snoddy also joined the Track & Field team and started tearing it up. In one of his very first events at Tech (the Auburn Invitational), Snoddy ran the 60-meter and broke the school record. He would go onto break it two more times that season. At the NCAA Championships, Snoddy finished 13th in the 60-meter and earned second-team Indoor USTFCCA All-American honors.

In his second season with the Track & Field team, Snoddy earned third-team All-ACC honors in the 60-meter at the ACC Indoor Championships. He took four first place finishes throughout the season between the the 60-meter and the 200-meter.

Thank you for you hard work and dedication on the Flats, Broderick! Best of luck in your future endeavors!
