Fearful of missing his first AFL game, Ben Kennedy goes the extra mile – or two.
Nobody can say that Collingwood’s Ben Kennedy isn’t dedicated.
Ahead of his first game in the famous black and white strip last weekend, Kennedy was on the way to the ground with a friend before becoming caught in a traffic snarl.
With time running down before he was expected at Etihad Stadium to take on St Kilda, Kennedy did what any 19-year-old athlete with boundless energy would do – run.
Coming off the bench as the Magpies’ substitute Kennedy did not let the big occasion get the better of him as he secured eight possessions.
