All smiles for Zamare as he signs his National Letter of Intent.

Snowden will continue his football career at Salisbury University as he signs his National Letter of Intent to play the fall of 2018. Playing running back and cornerback, he was one of the driving forces that led Lancers to the 3A State Championship.

Snowden put up 476 yards on 57 carries in the backfield, averaging more than 8 yards a carry and even found the end zone 6 times.

Head football coach Rick Conner said, “He is the pure example of what a football player should be, and he shows nothing but class. The way that he gave 100 percent every single day and could match up to any competition is why I loved to watch him play the game of football.”

Snowden said that there are so many people who pushed him and supported him to keep him working hard, especially his family. But in the midst of this, he knew that he was the one who was going to have to take action if he wanted to reach his goals. He first picked up a football at 5 years old in his own back yard, and will soon be picking up one on a collegiate field.

This wasn’t the only school that he was interested in, but there was too much to love about the campus that sits on Camden Avenue. Snowden focused on what the interaction was like with the people, player, and coach interactions that he had. He felt good vibes, and the school’s location wasn’t too far away from home.

“I’m confident in my choice in Salisbury. Everyone is one big family,” said Snowden.

The school has a renowned academic program and has the studies that interested him, Business and Accounting. After college he wants to pursue a accounting career or be a entrepreneur. He eventually wants to open his own business in physical training and conditioning.

Zamarre’s grandfather Vincent Fulton, was with Snowden every step of the way on his journey and has nothing but good feelings about his grandson arriving there.

“I’m really excited for him to start this chapter in his life, and I really think that the Salisbury program will fit him well.” said Fulton.

He joins LHS graduate and senior Clark Stieren a wide receiver at Salisbury.

Snowden truly believes that high football prepared him for college. He is not worried about the transition from high school to college. It’s just like the transition from middle school to high school. He says he is ready for any obstacle that is thrown his way.
