Season after season, K-State football is underestimated. Words like 'underdog' and 'grassroots' are used year in and year out to describe the Wildcats, and it's often easy for fans to think Bill Snyder and Co. are overlooked and underrated on the nation's highest sports media platforms.

Letter from A.D. John Currie - August 5

Good Afternoon K-State Fans!

It's great to be back in Manhattan and ready for the start of a new semester following a nice family vacation with Mary Lawrence and the kids. We drove 15 hours on Saturday to get back to MHK just in time for me to visit with our football team Sunday afternoon as the squad begins fall camp. Despite the heat, Coach Snyder and the team are hard at work preparing for the August 30 season opener. Just as they have been all summer our skilled athletic training staff is omnipresent to help ensure a safe training environment, and this August our team is able to utilize our new Ahearn Fund Performance Table for all camp meals. The support of all our fans, donors and Ahearn members is enabling K-State Athletics to take big strides toward our goal of A World-Class Student-Athlete Experience. Hats off to Chef Mike and the Sodexo team who are working hand-in-hand with K-State Athletics staff nutritionist Scott Trausch to prepare delicious and nutritious meals for our student-athletes!
