Wildcats get surprise mental and physical challenges

One of the downfalls of Northwestern football in recent years is not their lack of dedication to performing well, but their durability and endurance. This is just the way things go for Northwestern, which limits the kind of talent they can bring in to their program based on higher academic standards (and this is certainly not a bad thing). So Pat Fitzgerald is always looking for new ways to build his team’s strength and team unity in hopes of fielding a team that will not be run off by more athletic Big Ten opposition.

What better way to get the team kicked in the butt than by being given orders by Navy SEALs?

From the YouTube description:

Head coach Pat Fitzgerald welcomed to Camp Kenosha three members of the elite Navy SEALs unit that serves to protect America in many of the most difficult wartime settings our nation encounters oversees. The trio of SEALs began their day with the Wildcats by speaking to the team about specific methods of improving one’s mental toughness, thriving under intense pressure and sacrificing personal comfort for the greater good. After that, the ‘Cats were instructed to hustle to their team buses, which were destined for a workout session that had never appeared on the camp schedule the Wildcats were issued at camp’s outset.
