Before the Snap


"Before the Snap"

The Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Youth and Education team is proud to offer a Live Webinar program called “Before the Snap” that is focused on gaining an insight to professional careers in and around the NFL. This program will give learners in high school, college and beyond the chance to interact in a live Q/A program format with an industry expert. Fans see the final product on Sundays during the game – but we want to highlight the work that goes into making that product flawless, the work done Monday-Saturday and on game day.

Program Testimonials


Zach (University of Nebraska)

“I wanted to let you know . . . I have recently accepted a position with the Kansas City Chiefs as a Community Outreach Seasonal Assistant! I do not think I would have gotten this position had it not been for the opportunity to ask [her] questions during Before the Snap and connect with her on LinkedIn after. I want to thank you two and everyone else at the Hall of Fame for all the work you do to put that program on.”


Marcus (Boise State University)

“Before the Snap is an awesome program for someone like myself, a college student with a goal of working in sports. The Youth and Education Team at the Hall of Fame has done a great job inviting professionals from many different backgrounds to share on their experiences and the path they took to where they are working in sports today. If you are looking for growth, contacts, and a teaching lesson from some of the best in their craft then this is a program you ought to look into.”


Joey (University of Michigan)

“As a Sport Management major, Before the Snap is a regular listen of mine because it is loaded with incredible advice provided by so many leaders in the football industry. If you want to prepare yourself for a groundbreaking career involving sports, or just your professional life in general, I highly recommend this weekly program from the Hall of Fame!”
