Sun Bowl players visit Fort Bliss troops

FORT BLISS, TEXAS (KTSM) - North Carolina State and Arizona State continue their march toward a Sun Bowl showdown, but on Wednesday, they took time out for the troops at Fort Bliss.

Both North Carolina State and Arizona State took turns at different facilities on post, getting hands on with stimulators but also actual tanks.

"It's pretty cool to see that their world is a completely different world than ours, but at the end of the day we all have the same stuff going on and that's teamwork and finishing is the main objective," said ASU linebacker Jay Jay Wilson.

The players tell KTSM it was easy to relate with the soldiers because although they live different lives they both have one thing in common when it comes to working both in and out of the field.

"I think they've got a tough brotherhood and you need that in football to be successful," said NC State linebacker Germaine Pratt, "I think that's one huge thing and then trust. Trust is huge you got to trust your brother on the field."

Kick-off for the Hyundai Sun Bowl is set for Friday at 1pm. Tickets are still available for the game and you can look for complete coverage on KTSM.
