A 32-year-old father of three who is an active Navy SEAL is trying to earn a spot on Northwestern University's football team.

Tom Hruby is a junior and wants to walk on as a defensive end. Hruby tells the Chicago Sun-Times that he's not doing anything "outstanding or amazing." Instead he sees it as "just more of a challenging route." Northwestern lists him as 6-3, 230 pounds. He has a dorm room at the school and visits his family on the weekends.

Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald calls Hruby "absolutely relentless, like you would suspect from a SEAL."

Hruby works as a SEAL instructor at Great Lakes Naval Station. He saved up his leave so he could participate in the Wildcats' three-week training camp this month.
