STUDENTS from Katamatite, Invergordon, Tungamah, Corowa, Devenish, Congupna and Shepparton East primary schools were barking with excitement on Monday, following a visit from Western Bulldogs players as part of the AFL Goulburn Murray Player Appearance program.
Tom Campbell, Kieran Collins, Nathan Mullenger-Mchugh and Brad Lynch travelled to the schools taking the students through some skill drills where they picked up tips about kicking, holding the ball, before the players sat down to talk with the students about resilience, leadership and teamwork.
AFL Goulburn Murray football development manager, Mark Lambourn said, “The students asked some great questions and the players asked some top questions back.
“Every story or questions the kids asked, the players were able to turn it back into a classroom situation so that the students could relate.
“These remote towns rarely get such an opportunity to have AFL players visits and the students from the schools were very excited about catching up with the Bulldogs players. It was an absolute buzz and the look on the kid’s faces said it all.”
