At 24, Neil Sachse was an Aussie
Rules star on the rise. The burly South
Australian had torn through the ranks
to become the most sought-after
player in the country. Then, in only his
second game in the top flight, playing
for Footscray, a front-on collision
left Sasche a quadriplegic. In a single
moment, an explosive career was cut short.
It remains the most catastrophic injury
to any player in the history of the VFL/
AFL competition. However, it’s not the injury, but what Neil went on to
achieve that has come to define him. A passionate advocate for disability care
and injury prevention in sport, Sachse
has raised millions for medical research
through the Neil Sachse Foundation,
and been a mentor to countless
injured athletes.
Written in collaboration with The 7.30 Report’s Michael Sexton, this is a deeply inspiring story of sport, life,
endurance and love.
