Alex Jesaulenko

Alex ”Jezza” Jesaulenko was a footballing genius who undoubtedly ranks amoungst the best to have played the game of Australian Rules. His ball-handling wizardry, cat-like balance and spectacular marking thrilled crowds for one and a half decades.

He began his playing career in Canberra and in 1967 joined Carlton in the VFL. In 1970 Alex became the first Carlton player to kick 100 goals in a season. He joined St Kilda in 1980 where he finished his playing career. Alex played 15 games for Victoria and captained the Victorian team in 1975. He was chosen in the All-Australian side twice, and was three times third in the Brownlow Medal count.
