From the moment coach Brady Hoke took over at Michigan, he tried to instill some of the hard work and dedication of the Navy SEALs into the Wolverines.
Last August, Hoke gave each of his players a maize and blue trident that have each player's name and hang in the team meeting room in Schembechler Hall.
This year, Hoke has paired 22 of his team leaders with SEALs for leadership training in California. Michigan football announced the trip on both its Twitter and Facebook page.
Hoke established a relationship with the Navy SEALs while at San Diego State and has consistently tried to bring the same values to his team.
