Shuey steps up as West Coast leader for 2016 Season
West Coast Eagles midfielder Luke Shuey was this week elevated into the club’s senior five-man leadership group, replacing former teammate Scott Selwood.
Shuey is the youngest player in the leadership group, joining skipper Shannon Hurn, vice-captain Josh Kennedy, Matt Priddis and Eric Mackenzie.
Coach Adam Simpson said Shuey’s elevation was reward for his hard work.
“The elevation of Luke is indicative of his growth in the last couple of years and we are excited by what he brings to the group,” Simpson said.
Shuey has seemingly learned leadership by osmosis having played under and alongside some of the best motivators in the business – John Worsfold, Adam Simpson, Darren Glass and Shannon Hurn, to name a few – since arriving at West Coast in 2008.
