Paul Whiting

Paul was the first Secretary of the USAFL and is an unsung hero of the early years. Without Paul’s effort the League would not have been able to grow during those first few crucial years. During the first full AGM on the burgeoning League, in 1998, Paul was the first to step forward to help. Paul’s sporting background was surfing and he had been involved with the administration of many surf clubs in Australia. He knew what it took to make a volunteer organization work. He translated his administration skills perfectly to footy. Paul represents all the people that were involved with the league in the very early years; the people that helped get footy established and did it without any fanfare.
