Northwestern players get Navy SEALs training

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).

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.
