Girls Footy Australia is excited to announce and welcome our newest AFLW coach, Izzy Huntington. Izzy was the #1 draft pick for the 2018 AFLW season to the Westerbulldogs. Izzy had an incredible start to the AFLW 2018 season and had a huge influence on the Bulldogs. Unfortunately due to a ACL injury her playing season was cut short but her positivity and team first nature shone bright, helping with the Doggies success.
Prior to being drafted Izzy has represented Victoria Metro for 4 yeas and participate in the first ever AFL Youth Girls Academy in 2017. In addition, Izzy was a part of Sandringham Dragons TAC Youth Girls team for 5 years and represented the South Metro Junior multiple times. Izzy's experience at an representative and elite level brings a wealth of knowledge to our AFLW coaching team.
Izzy's positive energy and attitude plays huge role in her success as a coach, motiving and encouraging her players to be their best and of course enjoy their football. We are looking forward to Izzy's involvement in Girls Footy Australia, kicking off coaching Wednesday's nights of Melbourne Girls Grammar Fudmental Skill program with old Vic Metro team mates Katherine Smith from the Melbourne Football Club and Britt Boicici from the Collinngwood Football Club.
