How long have you been play­ing foot­ball? This will be my third year play­ing foot­ball for the Crocs and Aus­Kick. Why did you de­cide to start play­ing? Be­cause I heard other peo­ple talk­ing about it and it sounded like a lot of fun. Plus my dad is the coach. What do you love the most about foot­ball? Prob­a­bly win­ning. But you get to meet a lot of new peo­ple, when you play other teams which is good. What team do you bar­rack for in the AFL? The Carl­ton Blues. We live in a Carl­ton house, ev­ery­one in my fam­ily bar­racks for the Blues. Do you have a favourite player? Chris Judd be­cause he is just great and al­ways wins. I even named my her­mit crab ‘‘Juddy’’. What is the hard­est thing about play­ing foot­ball? Prac­tic­ing kick­ing goals. Do you have a favourite team mate? Kalan Poole be­cause we al­ways pass the ball to each other and we have fun to­gether. What po­si­tion do you play? I am mostly in the cen­tre. I like play­ing there be­cause you al­ways get to be in the ruck area and in the ac­tion. Most mem­o­rable mo­ment? Prob­a­bly when I kicked four goals in the grand fi­nal against the Li­ons last year. We won. Foot­ball am­bi­tions? I al­ways want to play foot­ball. I want to play for Carl­ton like Juddy.
