ONE of the Whitsundays' most promising Aussie Rules talents, 15-year-old Bo Hall will next weekend get his chance to show what he can do against the best in the state after he was selected in the under 16's Country Kookaburras.
Bo, along with four other Whitsunday Sea Eagles – Gauge Hill, Mitchell Brockley, Jacob Lowe and Michael Galea – travelled down to Rockhampton to represent the Mackay Crows team in last weekend's Country Queensland under 16's championships, with Bo named as one of the tournament's top players.
Although Bo was the only one of the five Whitsunday representatives from the Crows to be picked for the Kookaburras, all of them exceeded expectations in their performance.
The Crows won four out of their six games, which was not only great reward for the players but also their coaching staff, led by Regional Manager David Harding, who has implemented a development program for the entire Mackay Crows program, which started in December/January.
Harding was absolutely thrilled with the effort of the local Sea Eagles boys.
He was particularly impressed with Bo's selection to the Kookaburras, which gives him a fantastic opportunity to continue to grow as a player.
Bo has worked very hard on his fitness and skill level over the summer and now has the opportunity to press for selection in the Queensland side to play at the national championships.
Junior Sea Eagles committee member Jamie Fuhrmann said there had been plenty of people who had helped to push Bo to develop as a player and made special mention of Crows assistant coach Grant Brockley and Sea Eagles under 15 and 18 coaches Ben Hall and Tony Adamson who he said had given great support to the boys at training.
The four players Sea Eagles who weren't selected will now line up for the under 15's and 18's this weekend against the Mackay Eastern Swans at the Whitsunday Sports Park and all supporters should be encouraged to go along to view four of the best up and coming Aussie Rules talents in country Queensland.
