The life of an athletic director isn’t perhaps as cushy as it might seem.
Wichita State Athletic Director Eric Sexton was at Cessna Stadium early today. It wasn’t exactly bright and early since it was still dark outside. But it looked like he’d stopped by to cheer on those of us either determined enough or crazy enough to participate in “Shocker Fitness with Coach Bolt.” Of course, it’s not like Sexton was in his sweats.
Among other abuses, track coach Steve Rainbolt made us run the bleachers. The steep, imposing and, at times, menacing bleachers. He pointed out that when people come for events, sometimes they have a hard time making it to the top seats.
To which one weary participant added, “That’s why we don’t have football.”
