Your Ricky Stanzi "America, Love It or Leave It!" Moment of the Day: Northwestern practices at Naval Station

Northwestern held a football practice at Naval Station Great Lakes, which serves as the Navy's basic training facility for the entire country. It was a meaningful experience for both the team and the Navy personnel who were on hand to watch the practice.

"We just got the upmost respect for what our military does for our country not only here, but obviously abroad," Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said. "It's special to come into their house, into their backyard and have a chance to improve and get better. We're very appreciative."
