Beyond the Bio: Former US Open Director Jay Snyder

When Jay Snyder was a high school senior in Selinsgrove, legendary Susquehanna University football coach and athletic director Amos Alonzo Stagg, Jr., came out of his house to talk with Jay and his friends.

"He said, 'you know, when you get old, you're not going to be able to play baseball, you'll never find enough people to play baseball, you can't play football, you can't play basketball,'" Snyder remembers, recalling Stagg's high-pitched voice.
