Lachie Hunter is the Chris Hogan of the Australian Football League.
Hunter was eight when he started to play football, but Mark was not the first parent he followed into sport. His mother, Colleen, began playing lacrosse as a teenager, representing Victoria before moving on to much bigger things. She travelled to four World Cups, often as the Australian captain. She played for more than 20 years, her last game for Australia coming three years after Lachie was born. There's no vision around of her games, and only a few photos. But he has heard a lot of stories.
"She grew up in Williamstown, and Williamstown is a place where a lot of people play lacrosse, I'm not sure why," he said. "It's not a big sport but in that community it is, so she got started when she was young and kept going with it. I think she was a centre, which is pretty much the same as a midfielder in AFL. She was pretty smart and pretty quick, from what people have told me."
