Glenelg’s Luke Reynolds made two tough decisions on his way to his 100th Hostplus SANFL League game on Good Friday against Adelaide at ACH Group Stadium.
A talented allrounder with the Port Adelaide Cricket Club, Reynolds decided to focus on football at the age of 17 when elite pathways beckoned for him in both sports.
And then at the end of 2017, Reynolds made the difficult call to leave Port Adelaide for Glenelg, in order for his footy to flourish.
Since then Reynolds has gone on to play 72 of his 100 games with the Bays, including the club’s historic drought-breaking premiership against his former side in 2019.
Speaking on SANFL Radio, the 27-year-old remains delighted with both of his decisions after forming a close bond among the senior players at Brighton Road as they seek to win another premiership.
Now with a total of 108 League goals to his name since making his debut in 2013, Reynolds credits his laser-like accuracy from set shots to a simple routine and plenty of practice growing up with his father Lewie, a League footballer with West Adelaide.
No doubt Lewie will be watching on nervously as always as his son chalks up a significant milestone against the top-of-the-table Crows from 4.10pm.
