You don’t see many athletic directors throwing on workout gear and joining their teams for their preseason conditioning test.

But that’s exactly what Southern Miss AD Jon Gilbert did earlier today, running right alongside guys who recently reported for camp.

Here’s video of Gilbert, who was named AD back in January, getting after it.

A lot of athletic directors get a morning run in, or hop on the treadmill at some point in the day to get the workout in, but what Gilbert decided to do today is a rather simple act that the coaching staff and players will forever appreciate, and surely never forget.
