Season by Season

Season by Season

Development Coach, David Loader

“Dec’s an exceptionally athletically talented player, but above everything else he’s just so coachable.

“Where he’s come from, in a way he’s had the most to learn with the style of footy and access to a program full-time.

“He wants to be better, and he’s got such a super attitude in wanting to learn, and a real team-first attitude.

“He’s got exceptional speed and he’s really strong for a guy who’s not a big player, his ability to cause separation from a contest in tight is A-grade.

“He’s neatened up his kicking this year and his skill work in general, while his touch is coming around to allow him to keep playing at the highest level.

“He was able to play different roles for us this year in becoming a versatile player.”
