Montrose Native Chris Snee Announces Retirement
Four-time Pro Bowl offensive guard Chris Snee has announced his retirement from the New York Giants. Snee, a standout at Montrose High School, played ten seasons in the NFL … all with the New York Giants. Snee was a member of two Super Bowl championship teams.
In October 2013 Snee was put on the NFL’s injured reserve list with a hip injury. He was held out of mini-camp this Spring recovering from that injury as well as elbow and wrist injuries. Reportedly, the elbow injury was the one that has not healed enough to allow him to play.
Snee was a second round draft pick of the Giants in April, 2004. He signed a five-year, five million dollar contract with New York out of Boston College where he was a 2nd Team All-American and a First Team All Big East Team honoree.
While at Montrose Snee earned Pa. All-State honors twice. He was chosen to play in the Big 33 All-Star Classic featuring the top high school players in Pa. against a similar team from Ohio.
