The Texas Tech Raiders took on the Baylor Bears in a shoot out this weekend. At halftime, the Baylor Bears were leading the Red Raiders 35-27. One of the stand out stars for the Raiders was tight end Jace Amaro, he caught touchdown passes on the Raiders’ first two drives of the game.
In the second quarter, Amaro took a big hit from Baylor defensive back Ahmad Dixon on a crossing route. Dixon buried his helmet in Amaro’s chest. Amaro laid on the ground for a bit before getting up and being helped off the field. He finished the game with four catches for 55 yards.
Kansas State Wildcats coach Bill Snyder was watching the game and when he saw Amaro go down, he wrote him a letter by hand. Amaro posted the picture to his Twitter account.
That game against followed the Red Raiders loss to the Kansas State Wildcats. Amaro had 9 catches for 67 yards against the Wildcats.
The letter reads:
You’ve had a great year Jace. Admire how hard you play and the innate toughness you display to help your team. Hope you weren’t hurt badly on Saturday. Wishing you and your teammates continued success, good fortune and health.
Incredibly classy move Coach Snyder.
THE upmost respect to Kansas State and Coach Snyder, great program and an even greater coach. Huge fan. pic.twitter.com/fjeflBLU47
