Boot Camp Training Prepared Predators

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

“For eight hours, we had to crawl under barbed wire while they’re throwing grenades and smoke bombs,” said Nichol, eyes lighting up following a 2-1 overtime win.

“We had to pull a Humvee a mile-and-a-half, we shot M16s and handguns, we flew in Black Hawk helicopters ... It was all about building teamwork and it was probably one of the hardest days of my life.”

“We were running through the woods and swamps and through holes and these night stalkers—who fly in at night and they never leave a man behind—are trying to grab one of our guys and they couldn’t,” said the 33-year-old Edmonton-born grinder.

“They said it was the first time in 25 years they couldn’t (capture) one of our guys. They were all pissed off. We had to stick together.”
