Big im­pact pre­dicted

Cockburn Gazette - - LIFESTYLE -

A FORMER men­tor has flagged Fremantle sign­ing Cam McCarthy as hav­ing the po­ten­tial to make a big im­pact next sea­son.

Ryan Hen­ley, di­rec­tor of sport with Em­manuel Catholic Col­lege, taught McCarthy when he was a pupil at the school prior to head­ing to Sydney to chase his AFL dream.

He said McCarthy, who had vol­un­teered at in the PE depart­ment at the school af­ter de­cid­ing against re­turn­ing to his AFL club, could be what Fremantle were look­ing for up for­ward.

“I am sure all of the Fremantle Dock­ers sup­port­ers are ex­cited about Cam and I have no doubt that he will make a big im­pact in the AFL next year,” he said.

“He has an ex­cel­lent work ethic that was dis­played dur­ing his time here at Em­manuel.

“I think he will be an ex­cel­lent for­ward tar­get and he will also con­tinue the for­ward pres­sure that he dis­played dur­ing his time at the Gi­ants.”

Em­manuel runs an Aus­tralian Foot­ball Academy and has forged part­ner­ships with the Fremantle Dock­ers and the South Fremantle Foot­ball Club.
