Kayleigh May - 152
Dedication is something we have mentioned a few times already on Minutes with Moose.
But that is only because dedication is such a great quality to have; and it will take you far in life.
And we have discussed some of the best ways to judge dedication, from games played to goals kicked; but distance travelled is still a great deciding factor.
And with that in mind; let us introduce you to Kadina’s very own Kayleigh May.
152 kilometres … that is how far this promising Eagle must travel for games and trainings.
“Early mornings or I had to leave school early because it takes nearly two hours.”
Two hours seems like a pretty big stretch for most; but for Kayleigh the journey is worth it if it means she gets to play the game she loves;
“It’s a great feeling just to go out there with my friends to play the game I love.”
“I also play with the boys at Kadina so going to Adelaide, I play with the girls which was heaps different but fun.”
“Travelling from the country to the city to play, meeting new friends and it’s just a fun sport to play.”
But Kayleigh’s career involves more than just travelling long distances to play. In fact, she is a prime example of what hard work and dedication can lead to.
Her accolades include, after just three years of playing football;
The “Kadina junior colts’ runner up Best and Fairest” and as well as that, she has also represented the state U15s in 2018 and 2019 and is also a member of the Port Power Academy”.
But arguably the most impressive part is the fact that this promising player from Kadina has also earned a spot in the U15s All Australian team for this year.
So, travelling 152 kilometres to play for the Eagles as well as being a member of the 2019 U15 All Australian team … it all goes a long way in showing what type of player Kayleigh May is.
And considering her goals for the future are somewhere along the lines of “playing some league games, state teams and AFLW.”
This high level of dedication and talent; means that these future goals are quite possible for this top prospect.
But as always, there are some people she would like to thank for helping her reach this promising point in her footy career;
“My family for taking me everywhere and supporting me.”
Now it is hard to say exactly how good Kayleigh could end up being; but after reading everything we have provided … it is safe to say that the sky is pretty much the limit for Kayleigh May.
