When it comes to players within our league there are none better than the statistical history of Brett Szabo,
This person is known to us all in local football circles where he has carved out a local football career which has seen him play and coach at several clubs.
His passion for the Heyfield Kangaroos runs the deepest within his veins.
The quality of his character is unquestionable, his silky ability remarkable and in his younger days, he displayed freakish ability opposition clubs had little chance of controlling.
But above all I admire his longevity and sportsmanship displayed within the game, I suspect these are some of his most redeeming and outstanding qualities.
The career statistics look and sound something like this:
- In excess of 300 games with two NGFNL Clubs Gormandale & Heyfield.
- 1 Gormandale Senior Premiership in 1995 (Captain & Coach)
- 5 Heyfield Senior Premiership’s – 3 of which were in row 98, 99 & 2000
- 1 Heyfield reserves premiership
- 4 time Premiership Coach 3 Heyfield and 1 Gormandale
- 2 time League B & F 1998 & 1999
- Several Club Best & Fairest honours and a host of other awards.
Without doubt, his history has been compelling and captivating, I am not sure when this journey will come to end as I suspect he is pulling the boots on again this weekend, but I trust we have all enjoyed the entertainment and exhibition he has given us along the way.
