Jack Cockburn - 1935

Jack was recruited from Georgetown for the 1934 Season and instantly made an impact in the SANFL, finishing third in that year's Magarey.

He represented the state across half-back in the same year, won the Knuckey Cup in his first season, and again in 1941. He also played interstate in 1935 (at centre, just to show his versatility), in 1937 and 1938, and played in the South Premiership sides of 1935 and 1938.

He won the Magarey in 1935, and is recognised as one of the first proponents of running on after taking a mark.

During World War II he was stationed in Melbourne and in 1943 was signed up by Essendon. He played in Essendon's five point Grand Final loss to Richmond that year. After playing for Essendon again in 1944 he returned to South Australia.

Courageous and blessed with an enormous leaping ability, he finished his career as a knock ruckman in spite of his modest height of 5'10. Jack completed 167 games with the club, and is a member of our "Greatest Team Ever" and the SAFC and SANFL Hall of Fame.
