Afl darren glass takes a great mark


Darren Glass (born 14 May 1981) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for the West Coast Eagles in the Australian Football League (AFL). He is currently serving as an assistant coach for the Hawthorn Football Club. Originally from Northam, Western Australia, he began his career with Perth in the West Australian Football League (WAFL), before being recruited by West Coast with the 11th pick in the 1999 National Draft, making his debut for the club the following season. Playing mainly as a full-back, Glass was named in the All-Australian team on four occasions, including as captain of the 2012 team. He was named captain of West Coast in 2008, after Chris Judd was traded to Carlton, and won club best and fairest awards in 2007, 2009, and 2011. Glass retired from football midway through the 2014 season, having played 270 games for West Coast.

Glass, who had a relatively low profile in a team of well known stars such as Ben Cousins, Chris Judd, and Daniel Kerr, was named as the All-Australian full-back in 2006.

He had another excellent 2007 season where he won West Coast's Club Champion Award and his second All-Australian selection.

On 9 November 2007, Glass was announced as the new captain of West Coast with the departure of Chris Judd to Victoria. Glass was appointed to lead the recovery of the club after a series of off-field scandals. West Coast had a poor year in his first year of captaincy, suffering from the loss of Judd and Cousins as well as from injuries to key players, including Glass himself.

After a successful season playing all 22 matches in 2009, Glass won his second Club Champion award ahead of fellow defender Shannon Hurn. He followed this up two years later in 2011 where he won his third Club Champion award and third All-Australian selection. In 2012 Glass was given his fourth All-Australian selection and named as the captain of the All-Australian team.

On 12 June 2014, Glass announced his retirement due to injury, effective immediately.

Glass kicked just eight goals in 270 games. Out of over 200 players who have played more than 250 VFL/AFL games, only two (Rod Carter and John Rantall) kicked fewer goals.

Coaching

At the end of the 2017 AFL season Glass accepted a assistant coaching position at Hawthorn.

Personal

Glass married Alicia Severin in December 2007. They have two daughters and one son. Glass has a commerce degree in finance and marketing from Curtin University. He completed a Master of Business Administration degree at the University of Western Australia in 2015 and is currently working as a consultant for Boston Consulting Group.
