Paul Snape was one of the most talented attacking players in Oakland history that helped transition the team from a Division II power to a Division I power.
Snape was named Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletics Conference (GLIAC) Freshman of the Year and was an All-GLIAC first team selection in 1996. He also led Oakland to the national championship game where the Pioneers fell to Grand Canyon.
After redshirting in 1997, Snape was named to the All-Mid-Continent Conference first team in his final two seasons and was a four-time all-region honoree. Snape continues to rank inside the top 10 in career goals, assists, points and game-winning goals. He participated in the NCAA Men's Soccer Senior Bowl in 2001 and was on the Academic All-Mid-Con Team in '99 and '00. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in finance in 2000.
Continuing his soccer career, Snape moved on to work as an Associate Head Coach at the University of Michigan, beginning there in 2003. He helped guide the Wolverines to a Final Four and several Elite Eight appearances at the NCAA College Cup.
