Meet the Trainer

A native of Arkansas City, Kansas, Damien Lolar attended Junior College at Cowley County Community College. There, Damien received First Team All Conference and First Team All Region. Following a stellar two year run with Cowley, Lolar finished out his college career with West Texas A & M, a highly recruited student athlete. In his two years there, Lolar was one of the best players to wear the Buffs’ jersey; where he broke the most points in a single game and most points in a season. He also was admitted to the WTAM’s Hall of Fame after reaching the top 5 for points in a career - in only 2 years.

Post college, Lolar’s professional career included stints in numerous countries and Championships in China and Columbia. Damien pursued a professional career domestically playing 2 years in the NBA D-league, where he scored a career high 36 points. He spent the 2007 off season with the Denver Nuggets and the 2008 season in the ABA with the Oklahoma Stallions, where he averaged 32.7 points per game. After sustaining a shoulder injury that brought a premature end to his career, Verve came to life in the Spring of 2014 in order to provide the leadership and development that he yearned for, to others.
