This week, we’d like you to meet Tom Ryan. Tom will be travelling to Nashville this weekend to make his Bulldog debut. Tom is a goal kicking forward who recently moved to Denver from the west coast.

Q: What sports did you play prior to giving Aussie Rules footy a go (or previous footy clubs)?

I played for the Golden Gate Roos in San Francisco.

Q: What attracted you to footy?

My family is originally from country Victoria and I am a lifelong Richmond supporter.

Q: Favorite part of the game now? 

My favorite thing about club footy is taking a good mark on the lead and working as a team to create opportunities to score. My favorite thing about the AFL is the Tigers pressure, run and tackling.

Q: Best memory as a Bulldog so far? 

Watching how encouraging everyone at the club is at training and game day.

Q: What are your personal goals for this year?

My personal goals are to drastically improve my fitness and to kick 30 goals.

Welcome to the Denver Bulldogs Tom and good luck during your first game in the blue, red and white.
