A group of football recruits from Washington state are in the midst to become the nation’s first men’s football recruits to play on the US Navy.
In March, the Navy issued a waiver to enlist Huskies in a two-year recruitment.
Now the recruiters are in their seventh month of recruiting, with the final push for the recruits to arrive in the US by the end of July.
“We’re just excited to get started,” said Tom Furlong, one of the recruitbers.
Tom Furlongs recruitment manager, Mark Sowinski, and his team have been working for the last two years on the project.
We’ve been working on this project for six months.
We’re going to have a very, very strong base of students coming from all over the world, Tom says.
What they need to know is that they have a military service.
We need to do a lot of background checks on the students that we have in our program.
That’s why they’re coming.
A Navy recruiter with Husky players, Mark Czajkowski, said they had been given a strong “guidance” that they should “take a deep breath and relax”.
The Army is the biggest recruiter of students for Huskies football recruits, according to Tom Fowlkes.
There are also plans to recruit a student-athlete in the Army to become an ambassador.
Furlong said that the team was “very excited” to be recruiting the recruits.
They’re really excited about coming, and it’s very important that we recruit the best and brightest of the best.
