Hall of Fame Inductee - Stephen D. Snider
Snider, a 1981 graduate, was the first soccer player to be inducted
into the QHS Hall of Fame. A three year varsity letterman, he helped the
Blue Devils to a 17-3-2 record and a spot in the sectionals, where they
lost to eventual state champion Granite City.
The 1980-81 team set school records for most victories, fewest losses,
most shutouts and fewest goals allowed. As co-captain of that team, he
led the Blue Devils in assists with 14 and he also scored 10 goals from
his midfield position. Snider was named the team's most valuable player
and he was also on the all-sectional and all-state teams.
He went on to play at Washington University in St. Louis, where he
was named the team captain and an all-Midwest selection after both his
sophomore and junior years. He was honored as an NCAA Division III
All-American after his junior year.
Snider was killed in an automobile accident in 1984 when he was 20 years
old. The Stephen Davis Snider Memorial Awards has been established at
Washington University and is annually awarded to a Bears player.
