AUDREY SNYDER, born in West Chester and raised in Downingtown, covers all Penn State University athletics and the Big Ten Conference full-time for DKPittsburghSports.com.

Career: After graduating from Penn State in 2012, Audrey was torn between a career in sports writing and one as an English teacher. As a collegiate journalist who covered just about every sport for Penn State’s student-run newspaper, Audrey stuck with her passion and by her senior year was regularly contributing stories to USA Today, The Associated Press and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. She returned to State College a few months after graduation, this time as a Penn State football beat writer with The Patriot-News of Harrisburg and PennLive.com. She helped launch the site’s recruiting coverage, won a first-place Keystone Press Award for a sports feature and became obsessed with the day-to-day grind of beat reporting. She stayed in State College and started with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in 2014, covering Penn State football and just about anything else that popped up in Happy Valley.

Personal: Audrey lives in State College and loves to travel and hang out with family and friends. She’s a fan of country music, enjoys playing all kinds of instruments – especially guitar -- and is counting down the years until her Green Bay Packers season tickets arrive.
