Below are the NOLS Football 2015 Season Week #8 Results!
Week #8 was a challenge! Most of the snappers said it should have been easy, but they did not perform to their best potential. Why is that? Please -- Ask why at your next lesson! The past week's target competition required post snap responsibilities for every snap and the increase of the amount of live rush! Mentally be ready EVERY WEEK for the NOLS Football Season! Treat it like a game and you will perform your best!
