Coaching Bio

Half-Back for the Brisbane Lions and Rising Star Nominee in 2017 & 2018, becoming just the eleventh player to do so in the history of the award. I love AFL and I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and expertise with the next generation of AFL players.

I started playing AFL for Barwon Heads, before moving to St Joseph's Football and Netball Club in 2009. In 2014, I was selected to represent Victoria Country to play at the National Championships. I was then selected into the Geelong Falcons TAC Cup team. After breaking my leg in my 3rd game of the 2016 season, I missed out on playing in my draft year. I ended up being #23 Draft Pick in 2016 for the Brisbane Lions. Playing in the AFL, is something I have wanted since I was young and to be picked up by the Lions I was extremely grateful. I have now played a number of games in the AFL and I am looking forward to building and improving my game with the Brisbane Lions. I am passionate about coaching and I am keen to pass on my knowledge and help athletes reach their full potential and gain confidence in their ability.

Alex was fantastic. He really engaged with Jake which was as important as the skills he taught. Jake came away with a huge smile on his face and at training that night for his club he was kicking better than he ever has. Thanks again Alex.

Alex provided a fun and laid back coaching session that offered heaps of tips and encouragement to help Indy in her footy dream. He went above and beyond what was expected and made Indy’s 9th Birthday one to remember! Indy’s already keen for a second session! Thank you Alex and Playbook for providing such an awesome experience.

Alex was fantastic I could not have asked for a better late birthday/Christmas present for my son the smile on his face was priceless and after the session my son gave me the biggest hug and said thanks so much .Alex helped Lucas with his kicking technique as this was an area letting his game down ,was so patient with him the whole time as well as encouraging him throughout the whole experience. I think Alex may of found his latest number 1 fan!😊So reliable and so approachable made us both comfortable the minute we meet him . Thoroughly recommend Alex to anyone wanting to make their child's year unbelievable as my son said the best present ever 🎉
