Jack out of the box and into State side

June 21st, 2021

Coffs Harbour’s Jack Lemair is a welcome splash of colour in an oft grey world.
The freshly minted NNSWF State 15s boys rep for the National Youth Championships is pumped after hearing of his selection.
“It’s probably one of the highlights of my football career,” Jack said.
He identified the opportunity to play with and against more skilful players, and the exposure to a multitude of coaches, as clearcut benefits of the call-up.
Jack is a good interview, illuminating too, as 14 years on the planet and articulate expression don’t often coincide.
The Year 9 student at Coffs Harbour Christian Community School will have some familiarities at the Youth Champs – as they will be played at ‘home’ and a team-mate will include Loki Marchant (both boys are in the NCF NPL 15s side).
“I’ve been friends with Loki for a long time and it’s great that we’ve both made it (Youth Nationals) together,” he said.
While this will be Jack’s first time in a State team, he’s been playing football and Futsal since around the age of 7.
And he’s been a goody study – turning out for Sawtell, Coffs United, and then through the NPL sides from the 12s to the present.
The attacking central midfielder is licking his lips about the latest opening.
“My favourite part of the game is the tactical side. I enjoy the forward thinking and the determined mentality. I also like the physical side as I am quite strong on the ball,” Jack said.
“It (Youth Champs) will help me continue to work on game intelligence and mindset. I think this experience will take me to the next level with both of those attributes.”
The National Youth Championships for boys will be played at C.ex Coffs International Stadium from September 19 to 24.
