Round 7: Sam Menegola vs Michael Barlow
6 days ago
For this weeks episode of the Out Of Bounds Podcast I have a chat to one of the most resilient (and fittest) players in the AFL, Sam Menegola.
It took Sam five and a half years and three AFL clubs until he finally made his debut for the Geelong Football Club, so it’s great to be able to reflect on his journey ahead of the preliminary final this weekend. Some of the great lessons he has learnt a long the way is a real inspirational for any up and coming footballer.
Sam also opens up about the culture differences he has noticed at the clubs he has been at and what it is like taking the field with the dynamic duo of Joel Selwood and Patrick Dangerfield. I also quiz him on the story behind the “Cycle Mafia” that was started at Fremantle.
The ability of Sam to remain optimistic throughout his journey makes for a great story and an even better episode of the Out of Bounds podcast. Enjoy the listen.
