Footy-mad Caed (9) has am­bi­tions to play for Dock­ers

Cockburn Gazette - - DRIVEWAY -

CAED Luff is one footy-mad nineyear-old.

Watch­ing his older broth­ers run­ning around play­ing Aus­kick, it was not long be­fore Caed begged his par­ents to let him do the same

as soon as he turned six. Now a mem­ber of the Kardinya Kats’ Year 5 team, the Fre­man­tle res­i­dent has made his mark among team­mates, earn­ing him­self nu­mer­ous awards and the cap­taincy

in his short football ca­reer.

“I en­joy it be­cause it is fun to run around with my mates and tackle other play­ers,” he said.

“I want other play­ers to think I am a good, fair player and have re­spect for the way I play and it is also im­por­tant to be a good role model for other play­ers in my team.

“I try to play like Michael Wal­ters or Mar­cus Bon­tem­pelli be­cause they are fast and read the ball play like I try to.

“I would love to play AFL one day, hope­fully for the Freo Dock­ers be­cause they are my favourite team.”
