Coach Nolan Owen's list of endorsements.

John Wirtel | parent, John & Steven Wirtel, orland park, il.

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.

BOB BOYLE | PARENt, Camden Boyle, Lake Zurich, IL. 2016

I have been quite impressed with Coach Nolan and the NOLS Staff. Since Camden began his first professional training in late 2014, the difference is marked and the drive from Cam is only surpassed by Coach Nolan. He works on the entirety of the snapping process -- making the snappers as versatile as possible and setting them up for success. Coach Nolan works on the details to ensure consistency and continuous improvement. Lastly, his approach with his athletes puts the burden on them to excel and compete, making them better long snappers, better competitors, and better men. Thank you coach!

John Arent | PARENT, nelson arent, nashville, tn. 2016

Nolan Owen has the ability to make any long snapper a better long snapper. Once Nelson determined he was committed to long snapping, we searched the country for the best long snapping instruction available. We found a lot of camps and clinics providing the same basic introduction to long snapping. We also found a lot of people willing to take our money and promise their ranking system would lead to a scholarship for Nelson. Nolan was able to determine where Nelson needed to improve and he provided instruction tailored to making Nelson a better snapper. To this day, each time Nelson visits Nolan his snapping improves. We live in Nashville Tennessee and I have found visiting Nolan in Chicago to be an affordable and effective way to help Nelson work toward his dream of snapping at the next level. We appreciate the depth of training and the small group atmosphere at NOLS. Nelson is proud to share his affiliation with Nolan Owen whenever parents or coaches ask how he developed his skills. We try to visit Nolan every two to six weeks.  Between visits, Nolan provides Drill Sheets and virtual lessons that ensure Nelson continues to progress between visits. NOLS is not just a camp or a lesson. NOLS is a program. I promise any Long Snapper that commits to the NOLS program can become as great as they are willing to be. Thank you Nolan for all of the expertise, time and support you have provided to Nelson. Please feel free to share my contact information with anyone who would like to learn more about NOLS.


Until recently, I never understood why my husband and my son felt so strongly about Nolan Owen Long Snapping. This summer, Nelson and I have been visiting college specialist camps. I was very proud to see how Nelson compared to the other Long Snappers. I never expected the attention we received from the coaches at these big schools (4 SEC schools and 4 BIG 10 schools). Nelson gives Nolan credit for his Long Snapping ability. I also noticed that many of the other top performers at the college camps also trained with Nolan Owen. Thank you Nolan.

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. 


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.
