Titans stars share tips with students
Under 20s players Kurt Froggo, who plays second row, and Luke Dumas, who plays centre, fielded questions from the students including how they got their break, how long they have played football, how much do they eat and how many hours a day do they train.
Impressed with their huge workload, the students were amazed to hear Kurt and Luke, along with other team mates train at 5am and then again at 5pm every day.
However, they were even more impressed when they heard Kurt and Luke get to eat five meals a day.
“They even eat 10 to 12 Weet-bix every morning,” said Year Six student Sandon Mancell.
Sandon and his mate Dean Templeman agreed they were inspired to work hard at their football and train well so they, too, could have a chance at winning a spot in the professional football ranks.
“I’m inspired to work hard at my footy,” said Dean.
“And try to get to the same level as them, just keep trying and never give up.”
Sandon said he was inspired to eat his breakfast every day and train hard.
Titans development officer Darren Robb said it was important for the players to visit schools so youngsters could connect with players and realise that they, too, could have a future.
