    Excerpts from Brian's official bio page (7/31/18):

     

    "An AFL legend, Brian played with the Western Bulldogs for 10 years before moving to Hawthorn where he won three premierships and the Norm Smith medal. 

    Known for his size and strength, Brian was often referred to as a ‘defensive monster,’ but only time will tell if his skills come in handy in his new role as a Survivor castaway. 

    Survivor is a whole new world for me and I’m still in shock this is happening. I’m very excited to get out there though and give it a definite go!” 

    Married with two sons and a daughter, Brian calls himself a ‘goofball’ dad and loves nothing more than being with them.  

    A football legend, he has won numerous awards including the Norm Smith Medal in 2013, Charles Sutton Medal in 2007 and earned a place in the 2009 AFL All Australian team. ...

    “I’m not going to pretend this is going to be easy, I know it’s going to be hard. I’ve watched the show and I’ve heard that it really is as hard as it looks but I’m ready and keen to see what it’s like out there. To be a champion is an honour and one I want to make proud for my family.”"
