Jake Pantas Joins as a Senior Assistant Forwards Coach for 2020

I am excited to welcome Jake onboard as our forward’s coach for 2020. I have done a lot of interviews for line coaches over my 13-year coaching journey and I have to say Jake presented as well if not better than anyone I have interviewed. Jake’s enthusiasm, knowledge of modern footy structures as well as his general interest in all sports code tactics and how they relate to AFL footy was a breath of fresh air.

Jake is in his mid 20’s and was ravaged by injury in his footy career with injuries as he was looking to play at higher levels through TAC and then into the EFL and Southern Leagues. Jake has been around local clubs who have won 4 senior flags and spent time learning his coaching craft watching Heath Scotland and Ben Johnson amongst others.

I really look forward to working with Jake and bringing new energy to our forward group.
