For weeks, the night of July 31st was looming.
Some how, Clark just had to get through it...
an all night, 12 hour, boot camp training by the Navy Seals.
It was mandatory football training,
and our team was the first high school team to endure the torture.
White T-shirt with name and number
brown camouflage pants

It was a closed practice, NO parents allowed!
Curt and I drove by the school at about 10:30pm to see if we could catch a peek.
They had the boys on the back fields out of view of any spectators.
At about 3:00am they did the "Murph"
1 mile run
100 pull ups
200 push ups
1 mile run
The drill is named after Navy Lt. Michael Murphy,
who was killed in Afghanistan in 2005.
Clark finished in 39 minutes,
the first out of 70 to come in,
and 8 minutes before the 2nd guy finished
The end of a long night!
They all survived and admitted it was a cool experience...
BUT not one they want to repeat!
After the showers and ready for a big, hot breakfast
