Ori­gin greats get kids’ at­ten­tion

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

KIDS were en­thralled at how short Al­lan Langer was and how tall Wen­dell Sailor was when they met the Ori­gin greats.

Eidsvold stu­dents hung out with Langer, Jharal Yow Yeh and Sailor in Rock­hamp­ton as part of the an­nual FOGs (For­mer Ori­gin Greats) In­dige­nous Em­ploy­ment and Ca­reers Expo.

Year 10 stu­dent D Boy Law said the expo was great but the im­pres­sion of meet­ing the foot­ballers would last.

“Al­fie Langer and Yow Yeh – I see them as great role mod­els. All of us vis­it­ing kids were en­thralled at how short Langer was and how tall Sailor is,” he said.

Some large em­ploy­ers at­tended the expo.
