This year's ABC9 Male Athlete of the Year is West Lyon's Brandon Snyder. The All-State football captain at quarterback led the Wildcats to a perfect season, and the school's fourth state title. When his team got to the UNI Dome, Snyder took his game to another level. In the semifinals and finals he averaged 28 yards a carry and racked up 368 yards, and 7 touchdowns. As soon as football season was over he made sure the Wildcats kept winning. Snyder led West Lyon to their first ever state basketball title, and they did it by knocking off the defending champs from Boyden-Hull, undefeated Gehlen, and undefeated and top seeded Newell-Fonda. Snyder was named the Captain of the All-Tournament team after scoring 23 points and dishing out 9 assists in the title game.
