Career highlights

Corey Enright (born 14 September 1981) is an Australian rules footballer for the Geelong Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Early life[edit]

Enright grew up in the town of Kimba, South Australia[1] and played for the Kimba District Tigers in the Eastern Eyre Football League on the Eyre Peninsula, South Australia. Corey was recruited from the Port Adelaide Magpies, he was selected by Geelong with the 47th overall pick in the 1999 AFL Draft.[2]

AFL career[edit]

He was a member of the Geelong 2007, 2009 and 2011 Premiership teams.

In 2003 he played in every game of the season. He played in his first finals game in 2004 and again played in September the following year.

As a reward for his excellent 2008 season, Corey was awarded with his first All-Australian team selection. In 2009 after another superb season down back he got his second All-Australian team selection, this time starting on the field. He was also voted by his peers to be the league's most underrated player, as he had begun to make a name for himself as one of the league's most reliable non-key defenders with his superb overhead skills and cool, calm head.

2010 saw a third successive selection in the All-Australian team which he followed up with a fourth successive selection in 2011,[1] the last three selections as a starting back pocket.

At Geelong Corey also won his two Club Best and Fairest "Carji Greeves" Medals in the Premiership Years 2009 and 2011.[3]

He joins an elite AFL group who won multiple Club Best and Fairest Medals in Premiership years. This group includes Leigh Matthews, Kevin Bartlett, Jason Dunstall, Simon Black, Michael Voss, and Gary Ablett Junior.

On the night of the 2011 Carji Greeves Medal presentation, coach Chris Scott introduced Corey Enright as "still the most underrated player in the competition".[4]
