Northern Districts Tigers junior Jeremy Woodford is driven to become the best player he can be as he chases a spot in the Sydney Swans under 14s Academy squad for 2018.
The 13-year-old is putting in the effort at the Swans Academy, and is vying for selection in the Swans Academy Under 14 team to play in the upcoming State Carnival, against teams from the Greater Western Sydney Giants Academy.
Jeremy trains at North Dalton Park each week under the guidance of Northern Districts Tigers senior coach Leigh Forsyth, plus travels to Sydney to attend Academy sessions with other talented Under 14 players.
It’s a big commitment for the 13-year-old and his family but he is relishing the opportunities.
And all his coaches are impressed with his attitude and his development in 2017, including Forsyth.
‘’He has a great attitude, is very focused, and is always willing to listen and learn,’’ said Forsyth.
