Aliir Aliir of the Swans marks over Jack Watts of the Demons during the round 13 AFL match between the Sydney Swans and the Melbourne Demons at Sydney Cricket Ground on June 19, 2016 in Sydney, Australia.
When Michael O'Loughlin was drafted by the Sydney Swans at just 17 years of age, he was the no. 40 selection and the last player picked. Back then he could not have imagined the extraordinary future that awaited him. That future included numerous awards and accolades, the respect and admiration of fellow players, a huge number of personal supporters, and a record-breaking 303 games in the red and white.
