Where abouts in Oz did you get to play? What other types of football did / have you played?

Would have loved to played but no chance out here in the bush. Would have loved to have played middle linebacker or strong safety if given the chance.

I know you guys dont classify our games as football but here goes.

Played soccer, aussie rules and rugby league as a kid throughout school.

Played rugby union for five years at university mainly as a fullback. ( Probably best translates to free safety who played clean up on defence and punt returner on offense with the extra responsibility of kicking the ball when needed)

Then played four years of Aussie Rules football after that. Bit like playing on special teams all the time with guys flying around everywhere all the time.

We are lucky that every town has an organised football team in at least one football code.

Some guys play into their 40's. We know have over 40's and 50's golden oldies competitions in all football codes. We are spoilt with opportunities to keep playing football whatever our age or talent levels. Maybe thats why we are all old and broken down.

Hi Aussie Steeler
I gotta confess i am a POM and emigrated from the UK in 2005.Been in OZ for 2 years now and me ,wife and kids love it here and are pleased to call Australia our home now.Aussie are great folks and the beach,barby,beer lifestyle is really suiting me even after a long day at work.
Played american football in the uk many moons ago in amateur leagues set up in the Midlands and really enjoyed it until injuries caught up with me.
Now i concentrate all my passion on the Steelers and the tv gets a lot of hollering and cheering from me.

Being a steeler fan cancels out the fact you were once a POM. I'll still credit you as an Aussie.

We only have problems with the POMS who support other teams and troll around.

I'm keen to find out amongst our fellow posters who were the hardhitting linebackers back in their glory days .

I played one year, center. I flat out wasn't mean enough, and felt lost on the field. I did continue with basketball and baseball. Still, they were just games to me. I didn't understand the concept of competition (competition is different from winning and losing). I was too naive.

Our HS team went on to be WPIAL runners-up when I was a senior (after I left).

my freshman year i lead the JV team to the district championship as the quarterback. but since i was 5-9 and 215 they saw me more as a fullback on varsity. so i spent the next three years at fullback. i ran for 2300 yards in three years on varsity. at quarterback i ran for 5 TD and had 4 passing
