From rookie to Collingwood premiership captain—a celebration in pictures of the hard work that lead to the ultimate success. This is a snapshot of the former Collingwood captain's life—his decade in senior Australian football, his family, and his passions. Images and words tell the story of a man who had to make it the hard way via the rookie draft, and get the most out of every single opportunity that came his way. He was never the most talented Australian football player, but from the beginning he worked hard, played a role, and stood up under pressure. Enjoy the pictures, go behind the scenes with an elite athlete, relive the memories, and appreciate the legacy of Collingwood champion Nick Maxwell.
