Brennan Signs As Morris Ambassador
It is the changing face of professional sport and while there is a long way to go before women’s AFL receives the same support as male footy players, one local business has stepped up to the challenge.
Morris Finance Ltd has signed marquee Western Bulldogs player, Katie Brennan, as the business’ first female Sports Ambassador.
The 23 year-old is one of the women’s game’s biggest names. Growing up on a farm in southern Queensland, Katie first began playing the game at home. In her first game as an emergency fill-in on her older brother’s under eights team, Brennan booted seven goals. It was an early display of the skill of the power forward.
A dual All-Australian and member of the AIS – AFL Academy, Brennan captained the Queensland under 18 representative side for four years and has won a staggering eleven successive premierships, the last three at Victorian Women’s Football League club Darebin Falcons. She was signed to the Western Bulldogs in 2013.
With her own personal training business based in Coburg, Katie is also studying Exercise and Sports Science at the Australian Catholic University.
