BYU Rugby Participates in Special Forces Experience at Camp Williams
Provo, UT- The BYU Rugby team traveled to Camp Williams on Saturday to be trained by the Utah National Guard Army 19th Special Forces Group at the camp’s Leadership Reaction Course (LRC) and to participate in simulated trials of the Special Forces Assessment and Selection (SFAS) test.
“It was a great team building activity. It served the purpose we wanted,” said Kyle Sumsion, the team captain and standout flanker who has toured with the U.S. national team, of the day spent at Camp Williams. “It brought the guys together to accomplish a task while pushing everyone mentally and physically. The challenges also gave us more respect for the armed forces.”
The players were pushed by members of the Special Forces in different events from push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups to solving team-oriented obstacle courses at the camp inside the LRC. Some of the obstacle courses included crossing simulated mine fields and electric fences designed to test the teamwork and leadership abilities of members of the armed forces.
