Woodleigh School graduate Harrison Scott just loves putting boot to ball and letting the oval soar. Playing with the Mount Eliza Redlegs since he was eight years old, this Western Bulldogs supporter was awarded the Anzac Day medal at the end of April for best player on the field, which came as a surprise to this modest young man. He explains: “I had no idea. I kicked four goals and took a few marks against the Mornington Bulldogs on the day but didn’t think anything of it. After the game finished, we went into the clubrooms to have a few beers and it was announced. It was great because the award is given at the umpires’ discretion. It was a real surprise.”

Once Harrison started playing footy, he got hooked quickly. Now 21, this Bachelor of Exercise Science and Business student at Deakin University in Burwood continues to revel in training twice a week and playing every Saturday throughout the season. Sure, he comes from a sporty family where footy and cricket were big ticket items and went to a game with his mum and grandfather every weekend as a kid, but you can hear from the tone of his voice that being part of the Redlegs team means more to him than just being on the field. 

He continues: “I started off in the under-9s, then went through to the under-17s, then under-19s and now play in the firsts for the seniors. It’s been a big part of my life and I love being part of the club. My girlfriend Shania plays footy too. Training at the gym twice a week, doing my course and working at the St Kilda Football Club as high-performance assistant for the junior academy takes up plenty of time. The Anzac Day medal was a real bonus.” 

Will this sports-keen footballer keep playing once he’s through his degree and hopefully working as an exercise physiologist focusing on rehabilitation and chronic illness? Sure thing. He concludes: “I’m pretty happy playing with the Redlegs. If an opportunity to play at a higher level came up? I might have a go, but I’m happy where I am.”
