Meet Bryan Snyder

When Bryan Snyder attended classes in dietetics at UNC, he might not have foreseen that within a few years he’d be standing in as a guest lecturer, sharing his knowledge and insight as the Denver Broncos’ Team Nutrition Manager.

After graduating in 2009, Snyder started his work with the Broncos as an intern—an opportunity he learned about in class. A year later he accepted a full time position with the Broncos, with responsibilities that include dietary supplement evaluations, one-on-one individual consultations, training table menus, meal plans, and sideline hydration and nutrition. He returns to UNC once or twice a year as a guest lecturer.
