Letter to my younger self — Eric Mackenzie

Letter to my younger self — Eric Mackenzie

By

Letter to my younger self is back this year, as we honour the 2018 draft class. The Eagles’ Eric Mackenzie played 147 games across 12 seasons, and he wants to let his younger self know that his career will be defined depending on which pair of glasses he looks through.

Dear Eric,

You have two options…

Option 1:

You will never win a premiership or play in a Grand Final

You will miss multiple seasons through injury

You will have 14 surgeries

You may never run again after your career

You will win a wooden spoon

You will miss out on life membership.

LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF — BRENDON GODDARD 

Option 2:

You will win a best and fairest and also finish runner up

You will captain your team

You will make multiple All-Australian squads

You will play 147 games

You will win the Players’ Trademark Award

You will kick a game-winning goal and save a game-winning point

You will make friends for life.

LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF — LEE SPURR

The choice is yours but the outcome is the same, it just depends which glasses you are looking through.

Either way, enjoy the journey.
