The Adelaide Crows landed across the Mid North this week, with multiple primary and high schools receiving visits from the club’s AFL stars. Eudunda Area School was visited by a number of Crows footballers.
The R-12 school which educates around 200 students were greeted by Sam Shaw, Curtly Hampton and Mitch Grigg for a brief assembly in the school gym before going out for a kick and a catch.
Kids were able to ask the AFL footballers about their everyday lives, how injuries affect them, what teams they enjoy playing against and what teams they struggle against, as well as, in Hampton’s case, about his move interstate from GWS.
They were also treated to a quiz of their own, where the players gifted out prizes to the students across the year levels, receiving Crows caps, stickers and even socks before the quick run out with the players.
The Crows kick off their NAB Challenge campaign against the West Coast Eagles this Saturday, February 21, at Unley Oval.
