Cowboys learn from Navy SEALs
On Wednesday, the Cowboys visited the Navy SEALs operation outside San Diego.
“I’m very quick to point out to our football team that what they do is very different from what we do,” Garrett said. “They’re in life and death situations. We’re trying to win football games. But I’d be hard-pressed to think that we can’t learn something from them about how they go about their job every day, how they build teams and how they lead teams and the trust they have in each other.”
Players asked the SEALs about accountability, mental toughness and team building, coming away more impressed than ever.
“You think you’re tough, you think you work hard, those things are taken to another level, an extreme level,” linebacker Sean Lee said. “You think you’re sacrificing. Well, they’re sacrificing their lives to protect this country. They’re the ultimate warriors, the ultimate heroes. To get knowledge from them makes us a better football team and better people in general.”
