To all of our amazing Cats members and supporters.
I want to say thank you for your fiercely loyal support over my 13-year career as a player at the Geelong Football Club.
I limped into the GFC bright eyed and determined back in 2007 and limp off 4723 days later in 2020 proud that I have given my absolute best to our great club.
The one v one contests, the ice baths, the heartbreaking losses and the unbelievable victories at home or far away. I have tried to prepare as well as possible for every battle. You have been there with me through it all.
I grew up on a farm near a pin head sized country town in the Midwest of WA.
We both know I didn’t move like the most graceful looking footballer, nor did I subscribe to the AFL player stereotype. I am unique but I have always just done what I think works best to help my teammates and the Geelong Football Club. I know myself and live by a vision. I strive to be a man of my word. Integrity and authenticity guide my path forward.
I would have loved to have helped our great club win more games and more premierships, but I leave having fully committed to the process and the values of our organisation.
I hope you have enjoyed laughing, yelling, crying, and moving your head both horizontally and vertically with me and at me over the past 13 years. Its been one hell of a ride.
