SportsPower Local Legend: Adrian Ryan

by The Know

Meet Adrian,

Our local legend from Port Macquarie

Adrian was nominated to be a SportsPower local legend by Fiona. Here is what she had to say…

Adrian is a parent at our local AFL Junior Club. A couple of years ago there were barely 20 kids at the club playing Auskick. With hard work and getting other parents onboard, he has taken the Auskick numbers to nearly 100 kids. They have so much fun playing footy. It has provided great role models for the children in our community who haven’t had the best start. Adrian is a champion at our club. The parents, like myself, love him for the hard work he has put in to make the club a success and that is why I am nominating Adrian for OUR SportsPower Local Legend.

After that nomination, we wanted to have a further Q&A with Adrian to really understand this legend.
