Rough stuff on footy field suits Roan fine

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

NATHAN Fyfe and Pa­trick Danger­field are two of the big­gest stars go­ing around in Aus­tralian foot­ball.

With this dy­namic duo as role mod­els, Roan O’He­hir has been blaz­ing his own trail on the foot­ball field.

The Mun­ster res­i­dent and CBC Fre­man­tle stu­dent has been dubbed one of the best young foot­ballers in the State, and was one of 20 se­lected to rep­re­sent WA in the School Sports Aus­tralia 12 Boys foot­ball com­pe­ti­tion held in Queens­land.

Roan said he loved play­ing foot­ball for South Coogee and was look­ing for­ward to tak­ing his game to the next level.

“I en­joy it be­cause I like the rough­ness of it and the speed, I get to see my friends and it keeps me fit and healthy,” he said.

“I watch AFL games care­fully and see what they do and where they po­si­tion them­selves for cer­tain sit­u­a­tions.

“I can­not wait till the trip, it’s go­ing to be a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence.

“I think we will do well and I hope we do well be­cause we have a really good team.”

Lake­lands Se­nior High School’s Taite Lantzke was se­lected for the foot­ball girl’s 15 team.
