(NEW YORK) -- Listen up, high school athletes.

If your choice sport is water polo, swimming, triathlons, lacrosse, boxing, rugby or wrestling, you might have a future in one of the most prestigious arms of the U.S. military: the Navy SEALs.

Scott Williams, public affairs officer for Naval Special Warfare Command, told the San Diego Union Tribune that the Navy focuses on recruiting athletes from those seven sports.

"It's a physical job," he said. "So we need guys who have a competitive spirit and are used to hard work and training."
