Biography

Goldmine

  • The story of how Nelson became a long snapper goes back to his father’s playing days. In the middle of training camp, Nelson’s dad was extremely tired after grueling practices. He saw a player heading into his 11th season and he thought to himself, “I wish I was a long snapper.” He said, “If I ever have a son, I’m going to make sure he learns how to snap.”
  • Always around football, in the summers, Kyle would help his dad, Mark, when he was coaching in the NCAA and CFL. He worked as ball boy and assisted the equipment staff with laundry. At a young age, Kyle got to see tight knit locker rooms and learned how successful teams work together on and off the field. Mark’s career as a football coach meant many moves for the Nelson family. Kyle was born in Norman, OK and growing up, the family moved between Tulsa, OK and Canada three times and Kyle spent time living in Georgia, Kentucky, Arkansas, Texas, Oklah oma and New Mexico before coming to California.

  • In the past, Nelson has worked with middle school football players in Phoenix, AZ, teaching them the craft of long snapping as colleges begin recruiting students specifically to fill that role. “It helps the kids get into school,” he said. “We do it to get them scholarships, get their school paid for so their parents don’t have to.”
  • In his spare time, Nelson enjoys drawing, reading and going hiking. When Kyle was growing up, his family planned hikes on the weekends where he was able to witness the landscape of Arkansas, Georgia, Texas and Arizona. It translated to painting, where Kyle draws pictures of the outdoors such as oceans, forests and mountains. “I like turning color pictures into black and white, charcoal, Sharpies,” he said. “It’s a nice, relaxing hobby."
