In a year like no other, we have relied on our players to connect to our community including our wider community consisting of members, fans, sponsors and partners.

Joel has from day one put up his hand to assist the Club in any way, shape or form with this. More significantly, Joel has offered this support from the moment he came to the Club.

Joel has played a huge role in a number of our Community programs in 2020 such as Footy Cats at the annual Community Camp and promoting Auskick through his role as NAB Auskick Ambassador, Cats Care where he has assisted with multiple wishes and provided messages of support, and the Healthy Heroes program albeit, virtually.

Across his time at the Cats, Joel has been a successful leader not only on-field but off, guiding many players to be positive role models across all our Community programs.

Aside from his commitment to our Community programs, Joel continues to assist the Club with his ongoing support for our members, sponsors and partners.

We couldn’t be more proud to announce Joel for the 2020 Club Community Champion award.
