By the age of 14 he had started to dream of making it into the AFL. After completing the VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education) at Trinity Grammar David was lucky enough to be drafted to the Adelaide Crows at the end of 2006. He has played for the crows ever since, wearing the number 14 guernsey and working hard to try and secure the club’s third premiership.
David Mackay became involved as an Ambassador for Canteen in SA in 2011 and has loved being able to meet Members and help out during annual events. David says “Canteen provides such a wonderful environment for young people who are experiencing difficult periods in their lives due to cancer. Through the profile of the Adelaide Crows in SA, it is fantastic to be able to provide support to Canteen where possible. It has been great to be a part of it and I look forward to being involved in the future.”
