Monmouth football team goes through Navy SEALs training

The Monmouth football team offseason training is different than your traditional training.

The team spent three days last month going through SEALs training. The team was guided by Raymond C. Smith, a former commander of the elite forces of the United States Navy’s Sea, Air, and Land teams, known as the Navy SEALs.

The team was broken up by their positions on the field. After that, they went through a number of competitions.

The competitions included rigorous workouts. In addition, they were forced to memorize details about items and situations under stress.

“We have certain games that we use to help them get better at thinking during physical stress,” Smith said.

“In the Navy SEALs and in football, you not only have to work hard, you have to think hard.”

The coaching staff was not allowed to take part in the training, or even watch the drills. But head coach Kevin Callahan believes the training will help the team moving forward.

“Admiral Smith showed us how the SEAL training is similar to the training that a football team goes through,” he said.

“Cooperation, teamwork, communication, perseverance, the ability to be able to focus on a single task when there’s a lot going on around you, these are things that are not only important to Navy SEALs, it’s something that football players have to do.”

The team was 5-6 last season.
