Minyip-Murtoa footballer Adam Gerdtz notched up his 100th game and a wedding proposal last week. Picture: SAMANTHA CAMARRIMINYIP-MURTOA’S Adam Gerdtz just had a huge weekend on and off the football field.
Aside from notching up his 100th senior game in a win against Stawell, on the Thursday before the big match he proposed to his partner Kate Kuhne in Torquay.
“I only found out I was playing my 100th game the day after I proposed,” Gerdtz said.
“I tried to keep the engagement hush hush so it wouldn’t put the boys off the game, but they all found out anyway.
“It turned out to be a big weekend.”
The midfielder, 26, has been a Burra since he played under-11s.
“I first started playing senior footy in about 2003, but due to injuries it’s been a struggle making the 100,” Gerdtz said.
“I would love to play another 100 and stay loyal to the club.”
At 176cm, Gerdtz plays as an in and under midfi elder who dishes the ball off to his fellow playmakers.
He models himself on tenacious Western Bulldog’s midfi elder Matthew Boyd.
“I’ve never been a flashy player – and like Boyd I have always had to work hard on my skills,” he said.
Gerdtz said he had cemented his spot in the Minyip-Mutoa midfield.
He said 2012 has been the most promising year for himself and his team-mates.
“There’s is a great bunch of players in the team, but in previous years we have struggled to get things together,” he said.
“This year things are finally falling into place.”
The Burras currently sit third on the ladder and Gerdtz said this position had prompted talk of a possible premiership.
“I couldn’t describe what it would mean to win a premiership,” he said.
“It would definitely top off my football days.”
