He's one of the most recognisable figures in the AFL

At 209cm tall, weighing 111kg, bald head and a big beard, and it’s easy to see why big Maxy has become a cult hero and fan favourite of the Melbourne Demons faithful – and AFL community as a whole.

Throw in the fact that Max Gawn captained the Demons to the 2021 premiership – the proud club’s first title since 1964, and you can easily see why Max is an authentic club legend.

On the weekend Max played his 200 games for the Demons and celebrated that occasion with his family.

But now, the big man who can dominate a game at ruck or play as a forward, has another motivation to trying win another premiership with the Demons.

It’s his son, George.

“You’re just extremely proud of something … to the point where you can’t stop talking about the little fella around others! “
