Wow you must have high hopes for him. I honestly think M O will really come on this year. Has everything you want from a prospect. Athletically gifted and with enthusiasm to burn for learning the game.
It's just a hunch. I'll probably be wrong.

Seems O'Connor will be is chaperone around G-Town.

Both Mark and Stefan were kind enough to come down to show some support for the Geelong teams at the recent Australasian Regional Championships of Gaelic Football comp held in Geelong recently.

Both very nice lads, far better than that FIGJAM Tuohy.

This is next level preparation ahead of arrival:

STEFAN Okunbor admits he got a few strange looks.

As an Irish Gaelic prodigy arriving at GMHBA Stadium from the other side of the world, the 20-year-old wasn't meant to know the ins and outs of Geelong's entire playing list.

And it's that level of enthusiasm that has Cats officials quietly confident they may have unearthed another gem to follow in the footsteps of countrymen Zach Tuohy and Mark O'Connor.

"I was given the player profiles so I had no excuse to not know their names," Okunbor said after his first month in Australia.

"I think a few of the guys were a bit weirded out that I was saying their names before they introduced themselves.

"I got the player profiles, I've been in the loop for two years so I've had no excuse."
