2017 (Sophomore)
Matt Snyder saw his first game action with the Huskers as a sophomore in 2017, appearing in the first seven games before an injury cut his season short. Although he did not record a reception, Snyder provided key perimeter blocking for a Husker offense that produced five 100-yard rushers in Snyder’s seven games. Snyder also played a key role on special teams on Nebraska’s field goal and PAT units.

His sophomore season proved to be his last, as injuries forced him to retire from football prior to the 2018 season.

2016 (Redshirt Freshman)
Snyder provided depth at tight end, but did not play in a game. 

2015 (Redshirt)
Snyder redshirted his first year as a Husker.

Before Nebraska (California HS)
Snyder joined the Huskers as a versatile tight end from California High School in San Ramon, Calif., where he helped his team to three consecutive playoff appearances.

As a senior, Snyder caught 17 passes for 408 yards, an average of 24 yards per reception. He also had four touchdowns receptions for Coach Eric Billeci's team. Snyder was also a strong contributor on defense, racking up 57 tackles while adding an interception and seven quarterback hurries. Snyder's play helped his team to a 9-4 record before losing in the semifinals of the CIF Division I state playoffs.

Snyder had 17 receptions in his junior season, good for 259 receiving yards and two touchdowns. He was also a defensive stalwart for the Grizzlies, making 42 tackles, with 1.5 sacks, two breakups and a fumble recovery. Snyder's play helped California High to an 11-3 record, before losing in the CIF North Coast Division I playoffs.

Snyder provided depth on both sides of the ball as a sophomore in 2012, when his team posted a 10-3 record and advanced to the Division I state championship game.

Snyder was ranked among the nation's top 20 tight ends by 247Sports and ESPN, and 247 ranked him among the top 70 overall players in California. Snyder chose Nebraska after also visiting Oregon State, Michigan and California.

Snyder was born on Oct. 28, 1996, and is the son of Dave and Susan Snyder. He is a business administration major and an eight-time Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll selection. Snyder has volunteered his time with the Cornhusker State Games, Uplifting Athletes, Souper Bowl of Caring, Husker Heroes and local hospital visits.
