Adam Schefter, ESPN NFL Insider

"Shawn and I met when he was in high school and we were both working for the NFL Network at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. Since then, I've seen Shawn's work ethic and persistence, and we've shared opinions on certain players and specific situations in the league. I'm confident in his ability to scout and run a successful consulting business and think that Zobel Sports Consulting has a bright future."


Jeff Diamond, former Minnesota Vikings Senior VP/GM, former Tennessee Titans President/COO, former NFL Executive of the Year and currently doing Sports Consulting and Media work.

"...With all of his great attributes and his overall persistent effort along with his proven ability to deliver results on a consistent basis no matter the sport or the project, I believe in Shawn and his firm, Zobel Sports Consulting."

Thomas Hammock, Baltimore Ravens Running Backs Coach

"I worked closely with Shawn at the University of Minnesota when I coached running backs and he was valuable to me in the recruiting department, specifically in identifying talent that we could recruit and offer scholarships to. Since then we have stayed in touch as I moved on to Wisconsin and now with the Baltimore Ravens. I am confident in his ability to continue to provide value to teams and companies in the sports industry through Zobel Sports Consulting."

Brian Grant, Director of Operations (LA Memorial Coliseum and Sports Arena)

"Considering the quality of Shawn’s professionalism, dedication, and attention to detail, I couldn’t be happier to work with Shawn again and would highly recommend Shawn to other clients throughout the sport and entertainment industry."


Nate Osborne, Metropolis RFC Head Coach

"I met Shawn Zobel working for the NRFL. He was a American Football guy who was making the switch to Rugby. I was unsure what to think at first. A guy who's never seen a rugby game looking for rugby players. But he quickly proved me wrong. His work ethic, knowledge and his uncanny ability to spot talent, is second to none. He is an outstanding scout and man."


Darren Wolfson, KSTP/1500 ESPN Sports Contributor

"I've known Shawn since he was in high school analyzing NFL Draft prospects frame-by-frame when other kids his age were playing video games. His knowledge, passion, desire, and work ethic trump everyone. He also has a deep contact list ensuring that your needs will always be met."
