“I’ve always believed in hard work,” he said.
“It’s not just about being able to make money and enjoy it.”
Being a dad has taught me the importance of being a good father, which has helped me become a better man.
“Mr Haggerties son Jordan, now a senior at a Melbourne secondary school, has taken up his father’s role in coaching his team.”
He’s been amazing, he’s really put a lot of time into me and I love it,” Mr HaggerTY said.

He loves the boys and they love him.””
