Off the back of their massive win on the weekend, AFLW Fremantle coach Michelle Cowan has shared the epic story of how she got her foot in the door, without waiting for her dreams to come to her.
Fresh out of high school, Michelle explained to Heidi, Xavier & Ryan this morning how she had a ‘screw it’ moment and contacted every club in the AFL to let them know of her love for the game, coaching and to ask if there were any positions available.
All but two clubs wrote back to Michelle, mostly with messaged of decline, however, North Melbourne and Geelong liked what they read.
Both clubs actually flew representatives out to WA to meet with Michelle in person, with Geelong so impressed, they ended up creating a role specifically for her!
