Ray Carroll has coached close to 2,000 games, won a remarkable 47 premierships in the two flagship sports and spent the last 53 years helping young footballers and cricketers find their place in the world.
He has been hailed as the most successful dual coach in the annals of Australian College sport, according to many he is a living legend, and he will be the official guest at the 62nd Burramine Gift Carnival.
Carroll has been First XI (cricket) and First XVIII (football) Coach at Assumption College, Kilmore for more than four decades. He also taught English, History, Religion, Sports and Science, was a dormitory supervisor and was sports master from 1973 to 2007.
A few handy sportsmen to pass through his tutorage include Yarrawonga’s Peter Keenan, Neale Daniher, Simon O’Donnell, Billy Brownless, Jason Johnson and Shane Crawford.
Neale Daniher, when asked to give his thoughts on Carroll, said he was very much a players’ coach and everyone wanted to play for him.
“He taught the values of tradition and the importance of having a team ethos, it wasn’t about the individual,” Daniher said.
Carroll has received just about every honour going including NFL Coach of the Year, Order of Australia, Crusader Australia Hall of Honour, the Australian Sports Medal, the Centenary Medal and the Australian Football Coaches Association Lifetime Achievement Award.
