"Athletes are used to training extremely hard," Subervi said. "They're used to working in less than admirable conditions. They work on holidays. Ninety-nine percent of what they do is to play a game 1 percent of the time. That's exactly what we do."

He added the passion and the family-like atmosphere found in most fire stations is similar to the feel of a football team.

Both offensive lineman Cohl Cabral and running back Eno Benjamin said they expected the fire training to be physical, but were surprised by how challenging it was to cut a hole through the roof of a smoky building and control the fire hoses.

Subervi said they hope to expand their recruiting efforts to other sports teams at ASU in addition to Northern Arizona University and University of Arizona. Typically, the department hires about 75 new recruits each year.

"We're saving people's lives," he said. "To do that, we want people like these who have college degrees and know how to work hard."
