Brendan O'Sullivan


Twice a senior premiership player in 1976 and 1978, ‘Bos’ managed just 23 games overall and a few for Carlton Reserves before injury got him. He served as a senior assistant coach for some years and has headed the hugely successful U19 program since 2009, delivering premierships and developing future senior stars. His enthusiasm for Xavs’ football is second to none and he has proved a brilliant sounding board for coaches and players alike. He was the recipient of the William Denton Sr Perpetual Trophy in 2014.
