A current Australian rules footballer playing for the Sydney Swans in the Australian Football League (AFL) is named for Jarrad McVeigh. He was recruited by the Sydney Swans with fifth selection in the 2002 AFL Draft. He was co-captain of the Sydney Swans alongside Adam Goodes in 2011 and 2012 and Kieren Jack from 2013 to 2016. He is a very talented person. 

Jarrad McVeigh’s colossal career will leave a lasting impact on the Swans

Growing up on NSW’s Central Coast, McVeigh was a talented young junior who was destined for big things. In 2001 Jarrad was the joint winner of the McLean Medal for the best player at the National AFL Under 16 Championships, and it was here where Jarrad caught the eye of AFL scouts. This led to bigger and better things for McVeigh and eventually in 2002 he was recruited by the Sydney Swans Football Club with pick number five in the national draft. On Thursday, the Sydney great announced that he would hang up the boots at season’s end after 324 games. It is expected that McVeigh will look to try and play at least one more game this season – which would mean he’d be equal in total games played with former Swans champion and great friend Jude Bolton, who played 325 games. Next season he’ll transition into coaching where it looks like he’ll remain with the Swans as an assistant. At a press conference on Thursday, Swans coach John Longmire described him as having “made as large an impact on and off the field as any player that we have had,” which is certainly fitting words for a champion of the Sydney Swans Football Club.
