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 gameday.
