Syracuse trains with army at Fort Drum

In what is becoming a tradition for coach Scott Shafer's Syracuse team, the Orange are spending a few days an hour and a half north of campus at Fort Drum. The 2nd Brigade Combat Team of the United States Army is serving as host, as the players and soldiers participate in each other's training exercises.

"It's easy to feel sorry for yourself when you're in two-a-days, and I'd imagine the troops have those moments of weakness when they're in boot camp," Shafer said at Cuse.com. "But for our guys to sit across from the troops and realize, 'Hey, he's 21, I'm 21. He's up in the mountains of Afghanistan so I can go out and play football.'"
