Matt Thompson from the www.afl.com.au website reports on life after the AFL for one of the recent American recruits to the AFL. The story certainly gives a small idea of how one player gave our game a shot and when things didn’t fully pan out, another career awaited.
FORMER North Melbourne international rookie Eric Wallace has signed on with American NFL side Carolina Panthers.
The North Carolina local spent three years on the Kangaroos list, but failed to play a senior game.
Wallace – nicknamed 'The Beast' – has earned a spot on the Panthers 90-man roster in the position of tight end.
