How I first got involved in AFL

Football was a big part of family life for me. My mum, dad and brothers were footy mad. As kids my older brother Harry and I were ultra-competitive and for a long time my life’s ambition was to do everything he did and try to do it better! Dad was the Bright junior footy coach so I’d been going to U13 training since I was about 8 years old.
