Scary!Mihocek doesn't take his durability for granted – he's hoping to break a family curse with knee injuries that has claimed both of his parents and his two older brothers. (His father Jack played 13 games for Essendon from 1976-78.)
"My family is riddled with ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injuries and I'm surprised I've never done one," he said.
"So I'm not going to trim down the legs any time soon – they've probably saved me a few times."
Played with his brother at Echuca United a few years ago, came with big wraps and was hard as a cats head but just had no luck with his knees. Hopefully Checkers has got all of the luck.Interesting article https://m.afl.com.au/news/2019-07-17/does-secondyear-pie-have-the-blueprint-for-stopping-gov-
