Player Q & A: Hugh Dixon

Tuesday, February 16, 2021 - 4:21 PM

1) How have you settled into Shark Park?

I feel like I’ve settled into Shark Park really well. All the players and staff have been extremely welcoming and made the transition very easy.

2) Where do you see your role this year?

I see myself playing predominately as a tall forward that can give a marking option around the ground and hit the scoreboard. I think I will be spending some time in the ruck as well.

3) You spent some time on Fremantle’s list, what did you learn from experiencing the AFL environment?
I learnt a lot during my time at Freo about what it takes to play at the highest level. I also learnt a lot about the culture within the four walls of a football club and how important that is for team success.

4) Which Sharks have impressed you this pre-season?

Milan Murdock has impressed me with the way he attacks every session. Mathew Jupp has outstanding leadership qualities and has the ability to drive the team. Josh Schoenfeld and his aerobic capacity and ability to run is also another standout.

5) What do you do with yourself outside of football (Work etc)?

I work for a shipping container company unloading and loading products from shipping containers. 

6) What do Sharks fans have to look forward to in 2021?

From what I have seen in my short time at the club, I think that the fans should be excited to see a young and hungry team. Another year of maturing, a strong pre-season and the addition of some new players to the club will allows us to be very competitive this year.
