Australian athlete Scott Pendlebury plays Australian rules football for Collingwood FC in the Australian Football League.
Pendlebury was born in Sale, Gippsland Region of Victoria, on January 7, 1988. In 2006, he played his first game in the AFL with the Collingwood Football Club. Two years later, in 2008, he played his first game for Australia.
Scott is the only player in AFL history to have more than 600 disposals in less than eight seasons. The captain of the Pies has played in more games than any other player in the team’s history.
Who is the brother of Scott Pendlebury?
Scott Pendlebury’s brother is also a professional football player in Australia. He played for the Collingwood VFL team in the Victorian Football League (VFL). Scott’s older brother, Kristopher Pendleburry, led the Collingwood VFL football team after they won the Joseph Memorial Trophy.
But he wasn’t good enough to play in the Australian Football League. Ryan Pendlebury, the AFL star’s younger brother, has played for three different VFL teams.
Alex Pendlebury and Scott Pendlebury are married.
The Gippsland Power player, who had been dating Alex Pendlebury for a long time, said his wedding vows to her. Alex Pendlebury is a licensed nutritionist, vitamin coach, and model. She is married to the great Collingwood FC player Scott Pendlebury.
DailyMail UK says that Alex is now 32 years old. The couple got married in 2016, and their first child, a son named Jax, was born in 2017. He is now 5 years old. Darcy, who is now 2 years old, is their second young child. They just had her in 2020.
Scott Pendlebury is a member of the AFL
Fun fact: Before he became an AFL star, he was a basketball player in high school and got a full scholarship to the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.
But after only three weeks at AIS, Pendlebury decided he wanted to go in a different direction with his career and quit the U-18 basketball team. He moved back to Victoria to try to play football professionally and joined the TAC Cup team Gippsland Power.
In 2005, Pendlebury played two games for the U-18 Vic Country team. In each game, he had an average of 17 possessions. He was picked by Gippsland Power to play in the TAC Cup that same year. He had a good season with Gippsland, and his manager told Collingwood FC that they should pick him to play AFL. Since 2006, he has been a big part of the club’s history.
His honors as a Collingwood Magpies player
In 2011, a 34-year-old athlete won the Copeland Trophy for the first time. Since then, he has finished in the top three 13 out of the last 16 seasons at Collingwood. The Copeland trophy goes to Collingwood FC’s best and fairest player of the season. Gary Dempsey (15) and Kevin Murray (14) are the only other people who have won these awards more than Scott.
Out of those 13 top-three finishes, Pendlebury has won the Copeland Trophy five times, second only to former captain Nathan Buckley, who has won it one more time.
The captain of Collingwood has done a lot more as an AFL player. He has been in the Therabody All-Australian 40-man squad eleven times, which is second only to Lance Franklin’s twelve times.
Since 2014, Pendlebury has been the captain of Collingwood FC. He has also been named Best Captain by the AFL Players’ Association. He has won the Copeland Trophy five times and three Anzac Day Medals in 2010, 2011, and 2019.
Since 2014, Pendlebury has been the captain of the Collingwood team. This is the longest time a Collingwood captain has ever been in charge. Over the course of his AFL career, No. 10 has made more than 9000 disposals. This has only been done by Robert Harvey, Brent Harvey, and Kevin Bartlett.
