My footy heroes

I use an axe, tomahawk and a large rasp to make my sculptures. Here I have carved two of my favourite footy players. I like to gather around the television with my sons and watch the AFL. Even better is going to see my sons play for the Pungalindum Eagles in our local bush football competition. Families come from all around to watch the bush football games – although not as many people as at the MCG. One day I hope that I can go back to Melbourne with all my sons to see all our favourite players in action.
