This week is a huge week for me personally, for a number of reasons. Hard to believe that two years ago I nearly lost my life. Riding my motorbike back from Canberra Airport to my apartment, turning into the street I live in - a car with its indicator on to turn left, decided to continue to drive straight - unfortunately, it was straight into me at 80km/h. Although the injuries were horrific and painful, the pain of seeing my parents and fiancé's faces as I opened my eyes laid up in hospital were much more painful, something that I'll never forget. The support I got from football, school, and of course my partner, friends and family was enormous. I'd hate to think that I had taken things in life for granted - but in retrospect I most certainly did. While it was a shame that I had to go through such pain to discover that, it's been a driving force in everything I do ever since. I hope that in the past two years I've somehow paid back those people who supported me, and that I've learned from such a horrific experience. This weekend, as I coach the most important game of my short career - I came across a photo from the first day back at coaching after my accident. Football has given me so much - and 2017 has been my most treasured season so far. I'm no expert or hero - but next time you are doing something you love, imagine what your life would be like without it. I had to face that and I can guarantee you it scared the hell out of me. I can't wait for Saturday to come - and I think it's perfect that the game is coaching a club that has given me so much support this year, against the club that supported me when I was down and out. Whatever happens I know I've got the best people around me - thank you for everything, guys!
