Many, many moons ago, Brian Wickstrom was a track and field athlete at Kansas State. After stops in the fundraising arms at Missouri, Santa Clara and Missouri, he became athletics director at UC Riverside and now Louisiana-Monroe.
On Thursday morning, Wickstrom combined those two passions into one by going through 6 a.m. conditioning with the Warhawks’ freshmen.

Crossfit from UC Riverside gave me the base. Couldn’t pass up the chance to work-out with the student-athletes. https://t.co/VM4y4o9MEz

In all seriousness, there’s no better way for an athletics director to show your freshmen you care and that you’re there for them than putting your hand in the proverbial dirt under the cool morning light.
