Brian Barrish discovered Australian Football as a teenager in 1995, when he found an AFL highlights show while channel surfing.
He has followed the game religiously though the internet since then, it wasn’t until 2008 that he got involved with his local USAFL club, the Philadelphia Hawks.
Brian played a total of 61 games over seven seasons with the Hawks before retiring as a player in 2014. He has served as secretary and media manager with Philadelphia since 2009, and helped grow the club’s online footprint with game reports and social media involvement.
We discussed how Brian first fell in love with the sport of AFL and what he loves about it, the growth of AFL for men and women in the US, his current role with the USAFL and the collaboration between Tasmania and the USAFL.
