Docker mentors next indigenous stars
FREMANTLE Dockers defender Michael Johnson hosted a number of young indigenous stars at Fremantle Oval last week.
The veteran talked to the Footy Means Business squad as they prepared to play in the curtain raiser to the upcoming Indigenous AllStars game against the West Coast Eagles.
Johnson’s recovery from back surgery means he will not play in the All-Stars game, but he will help coach the young Footy Means Business squad alongside former Melbourne Demon Aaron Davey.
“I'll be helping out Aaron Davey and Eddie Sansbury on the day, so hopefully I do alright for the boys,” he said.
“I’ll be involved in the camp and then on game day I'll help coach these guys, and then maybe help the All-Stars as well.”
Included in the Footy Means Business Squad is South Lake’s Dominic Warrell and fellow WA players David Garlett, Raymond Taylor, Joshua Loo, of Redcliffe, Justin Lewis, Traye Bennell, Kelman Tullock, Vincent Adams, Cody Hilland and Trevor Du.
Both games will be played at Leederville Oval on February 20, with the curtain raiser from 3pm and the West Coast Eagles against the Indigenous All Stars game starting at 6.10pm.
