Coach Nolan Owen's list of endorsements.

John Wirtel, parent

Nolan I want to thank you for training  my boys for the last 2 years. Because of your hard work and knowledge John went on to be a true Freshman starter at Kansas and Steven started as a Sophomore on the 2013 State Champion Mount Carmel Caravan. None of this would have been possible without your guidance . The boys look forward to continuing their training with you.

Thanks again.

JOHN WIRTEL jr., NOLS LONG SNAPPER, University of Kansas

Nolan has helped me make tremendous strides with my long snapping and without him I can honestly say I would not be where I am today.

NICK ADAMS, NOLS Long Snapper, Central MichigaN University 

Nolan and Family,
A simple thank you cannot do justice to all you guys have done for me. You told me long snapping would take me places I never expected to go and I completely bought into it from day one.  I have completely trusted every adjustment you had made to me as a long snapper. I can say with 100% certainty that without those long and sometimes stressful lessons I would never be able to play Division 1 football. Nothing is better than the feeling of overcoming tremendous odds. Without your family, I would never have the opportunities I have today. Most importantly though I consider you family. Look forward to working with you over the next few years to see just how far long snapping can take me.

Brian Mayer, NOLS LONG SNAPPER, Northern Illinois UNIVERSITY 

Nolan helped me to get where I am today. By being Nolan’s back-up my freshman year at Northern Illinois University, it allowed a lot of time for him to focus on helping me. The drills he taught helped out significantly. By winning the snapping job in 2011 at NIU  I earned a scholarship. I work out with him frequently at NOLS group lessons, and he shows me many new things about my form that I did not notice. I recommend Nolan for his unbelievable knowledge with snapping. He can make a nobody into a somebody with his dedication to long snapping. 

Kyle Stelter, NOLS LONG SNAPPER, NY JETS TRAINING CAMP 

Nolan is one of the top long snapping instructors in the nation. He is a very good coach that takes the extra time to organize his lessons/camps to get his athletes the most out of them as possible. While working with him I have perfected many aspects of my form, accuracy, and speeds.  He focuses attention to the details and comes up with the most creative and effective drills. 

Ryan Kolka, NOLS LONG SNAPPER, IOWA HAWKEYES 

Nolan got me to where I wanted to be. I trusted and did what he said. I thank him a ton for everything. He knows all the details, drills, and keys to becoming successful. Nolan got me to that next level and I could not have done it without him.
