Boris officially a Cats legend
July 11, 2022 / 8:27 pm
COREY Enright’s glittering player career has been recognised with another honour after being elevated to Legend status at Geelong.
The former games record-holder was announced as the Cats’ 27th Legend at the club’s Hall of Fame function on Friday night.
The function also saw Cam Guthrie and Marck Blicavs inducted as life members and former vice-president Bob Gartland honoured with the R.J. Hickey Award for his service to the game of Australian Football.
Drafted from Kimba on South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula with pick no.47 in the 1999 National Draft, Enright went on to carve out a career that should see him inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame.
Across 332 games between 2001-2016, he played in the 2007, 2009 and 2011 premierships, winning the Carji Greeves Medal as club best-and-fairest in 2009 and 2011.
Enright also earned All-Australian selection on six occasions, including in his final season in 2016.
He was also named in the Dream Team for the Hall of Fame match against Victoria in 2008 which marked 150 years of Australian Football.
Following his retirement, Enright immediately joined Geelong’s coaching staff, where he spent five years before joining St Kilda ahead of the 2022 season.
