Kyabram young gun Coby McCarthy is looking forward to representing Victoria in Sydney.July 16, 2014 3:30am
A Kyabram teenager will lead Victoria’s charge at the School Sport Australia 15 Years and Under Australian Football Championship in Sydney from July 19 to 26.
Coby McCarthy got his call-up after the final state trial match in May and received his Big V jumper last week.
With Victoria Country not fielding a side this season because Tasmania is rejoining the competition, it has been competitive for spots in the Victorian side for the championships.
This is the competition that produced other Kyabram players who went onto play AFL football — Brett Deledio in 2002 and Garry Lyon in 1982.
In April he played for Central Murray in the V/Line Cup; the side winning the division two grand-final against Hampden by 47 points.
While he is an onballer for Kyabram’s under-16 division one side, Coby is prepared to play any position for Victoria.
