Bootcamp on the gridiron.
One local high school wraps up week one of summer practice with a visit from the Marines.
The Marines turned the Big Reds football field into an obstacle course, complete with eight physically challenging and grueling stations.
The boys ran suicides, did interlocking pushups and appropriately finished by carrying each other across the finish line.
PHS coaches and the instructors say the course symbolizes a football game, challenging players to dig deep and finish as a team.
The morning began with a 2 hour lecture from the Marines, setting the tone for the obstacle course by teaching the boys Marine core values.
