Brian Kelly wasn't kidding when he said Notre Dame's first four days of training camp at Camp Shiloh in Marion, Indiana was about much more than just football.
After their 2nd day of practice, the Irish football team got to have some fun. They took part in rock climbing, a zip line and a giant swing.
300 pound defensive lineman Kona Schwenke stole the show as he took flight on the swing.
"I asked the girl what the weight limit was and she said it was 250 but we made it bigger for this week so I was like 'aright--I hope it can match the weight because there are some big guys up there," Irish captain and offensive lineman Zach Martin told und.com.
Martin was the first offensive lineman to reach the top of the rock climbing.
"It was hard-- a burn on the forearms," Martin said in his interview with the school's website. "Had to take a few breaks because you couldn't make a first anymore to grab anything. Felt good to make it up and the zip line was good on the way down."
Martin says the team is enjoying the opportunity to bond on and off the field.
"We didn't really know what to expect. It's been a pleasant surprise," he explained. "Everything is real close. They put us in dorms with not your position or age group. So I'm with a lot of defensive and young guys. To be out here in seclusion, it's just us and we are getting to know each other pretty well."
Notre Dame will remain at Camp Shiloh until Thursday night. The team returns to campus for its first day in pads on Friday.
