Exeter senior Teddy Snyder talks with SV Sports
When Exeter junior Reece Garvin suffered an injury in the Berks Conference Championship Game, it resulted in more playing time for Teddy Snyder. The 6'1 senior shooting guard has taken full advantage. Snyder made four three-pointers and scored 18 points in the first round of the District 3-5A playoffs. The third-seeded Eagles blew out #14 seed Shippensburg 72-47. Snyder matched his career-high with 19 points against sixth-seeded Milton Hershey in the District 3 quarterfinals on Thursday. He hit five triples in a 80-58 rout. Snyder was one of four Exeter players in double digits. "I feel like at any given night, anyone could have 15-20 points," said Snyder. Anthony Caccese. Zyion Paschall, Kevin Saenz, and Garvin are each averaging between 11 and 13 points. Caccese and Paschall were selected to the all-county team this year. Caccese is a 6'7, 280-pound center who's committed to Delaware for football. Snyder leads the club with 41 treys. "We all want to play team basketball, make the right play. Nobody cares about themself," he noted. "The most impressive thing about Teddy is how he stays the course. Whatever you need from me, I'm ready to go. He's playing with confidence right now. You can tell he's a kid who's put in the work day in and day out," emphasized head coach Matt Ashcroft. The (21-6) Eagles host seventh-seeded Hershey in the District 3 semifinals on Monday. Exeter is searching for its first District 3 title. Snyder's father, Ted, scored 1,270 points at Kutztown High School. Teddy is headed to Ursinus to play tennis. Paul Roberts of SV Sports asked him about his cooking skills, favorite sports movie, musical artists, and pickleball.
