South Carolina players do training excercises at Ft. Jackson

  South Carolina football players were split into different units and took part in rigorous training excercises.

South Carolina's football program took a break from fighting in the trenches on the football field to get a glimpse of real combat life when the coaching staff brought players to Fort Jackson's Army base to undergo rigorous training excercises.

Military personnel like Maj. General Roger Cloutier spoke to Gamecocks players about their influence within the university as well as the community. Players then took part in drills to improve leadership and communication, as well as physical and mental strength. 

As in the Army, the importance of picking up teammates and working together for a common goal was emphasized throughout the training. The shared experience seemed to have a tremendous impact on all those involved.

"In the face of adversity, you find out a lot about somebody and there was a lot of adversity," new Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp said in the video. "To see our guys perservere through that and have some emotion and have some enthusiasm about it and pull together, there's not a price for that."
