2014 AF Elxam Champ; Dublin are pie

« on: May 14, 2015, 12:22:38 PM »

Geelong rookie James Toohey has decided to retire from AFL and turn his attention to full time study and completing his university degree.

The 21-year-old played 13 VFL games in 2014, his first season with the club. In addition to his obvious footballing ability, James also excelled in the classroom, and was dux at St Kevin’s College in year 12.

“Due to family, medical and personal reasons, I have decided to step away from AFL football and return to university on a full time basis,” Toohey said.
“It's an extremely difficult decision, but one that is the best thing for my health and my family.
“I would like to thank the club for the opportunity, and for all the support they have given me and my family. I am unbelievably grateful for the experience and just wish the best for all my teammates and the club.”
The club wished James and his family well in the future.
