Glenelg has added former North Adelaide utility Rhys O’Keeffe as it seeks to add bigger bodies to its developing midfield unit.
Entering his second season at the helm, Tigers coach Matt Lokan identified a need to bolster the physical strength of his on-ball brigade, with solidly built Dylan Reinbrecht (Norwood) and Ben Sawford (Port) also joining in the off-season.
Speaking on SANFL Radio, Lokan said O’Keeffe – who measures in at a sizeable 188cm and 88kg – had been quick to impress on the track since arriving at Brighton Road.For the full story by Zac Milbank, and to hear the Soundcloud interview please CLICK HERE
JONTY Scharenberg walked out of his English exam, opened up his Twitter feed on his phone and was shocked by what he read.
It was late November and his older brother Matt had torn his anterior cruciate ligament and would need a knee reconstruction, his second in two years on Collingwood's list.
"I couldn't believe it," Jonty told AFL.com.au. "Mum didn't want to tell me before I went into the exam which is fair enough, but I was just shattered for him. I sent him a text straight away but I just couldn't believe it.
"Seeing the hard work he's gone through and for it to happen again is pretty frustrating for him, but I'm sure he'll be able to bounce back."
Scharenberg, 17, hopes to join his older brother at the top level via this year's NAB AFL Draft, having impressed last season for South Australia's under-18 team and even breaking into Glenelg's senior SANFL side.
This week he is training in America with the NAB AFL Academy on their high performance camp in Florida – a trip designed to reflect an AFL club environment – but he already has a strong insight into what can come with being a professional athlete.
