Mr. Nolan was born in Claremore, Oklahoma on August 9, 1933, to Denver Guthrie and Roverda (Winn) Nolan. A sports fanatic, and football player, Don graduated from Bristow, Oklahoma High School in 1952. Don continued his education at Central State College, in Edmond, where he continued excelling in football.
