I started playing football with Jimmy when I was 16 at the Geelong falcons. He was the first bloke to welcome me at the football club and we've been close mates ever since. It's been an absolute privilege to have played along side one of the greats of the game for such a long period of time. Wishing you all the best in this next chapter of your life! @jrb03
