Local Legend, SC Falcons Captain Dane Hogan

2017

Sunshine Coast Falcons captain, Dane Hogan is has hopeful expectations with the Falcons holding a strong position at number two in the ladder half way into the season. Get to know your local legend!

Name: Dane Hogan

Position: Second Row/ Lock

Started playing when: When I was ten. I played soccer first because my parents thought I was too small to play footy so I had to work up and convince them otherwise.

Pre-game ritual: I don’t really have a pre-game ritual, other than making sure I get a big feed the night before.

Training tips: I try to tick all the boxes leading up to a game. I feel slack if I haven’t prepared properly.

Most memorable career moment: My NRL debut in 2010

What do you do in your downtime: When I’m not working or playing, I’ll usually be at the beach surfing.

Advice to young players interested in getting into the game: Don’t stress too much when you’re young if you haven’t made a rep team at 15-17. A lot of those kids think they have it made when they make a team early and their commitment can sway. Stay committed and you’ll shine through at the end.

Best food for fuel: I don’t eat too much before a game, but pizza and pasta – definitely plenty of carbs the night before!

Catch Dane in action at the next SC Falcons game here at Sunshine Coast Stadium.
