I stumbled across a documentary on YouTube that a lot of people may not have seen before.
Tom Rogic’ rise to the top was rather unconventional, graduating through the Nike Academy after winning ‘The Chance’. The Nike Academy was designed to give young players a platform into professional football.
To achieve this, you must go through a series of trials and fend off 75,000 other applicants. Tom Rogic being Tom Rogic – did exactly that.
Since then it goes without saying he’s had his troubles with injury and finding himself nowhere near the squad to being an invaluable member of the first team that he is today.
Anyway, you can watch the full 30 minute documentary featuring the man himself (and others) right here.
