kids on the kouch 007 w/ Connor Murray


In today's episode of Kids on the Kouch, we sit down with Connor Murray, a 13yr old AFL athlete who is part of the Sydney Swans Academy to get his thoughts on pressure, failure, fear, and more... 

What's Been Your Biggest Accomplishment So Far?
Making the Sydney Swans Academy and representing them down at Albury

What comes to mind when you think of the word failure? Do you have a favourite failure?
To me, failure is letting other people down. I always think "what if I'm not good enough" and "what if I make a mistake" and, "what if I let my parents, friends, or coaches down"... hmmm, I can't think of any

What comes to mind when you think of the word fear?
Errors, letting others down. It all revolves around that. It feels... it feels bad, something I can't explain

Where do you think pressure comes from?
Me, for sure

Do you think we should move toward or away from adversity?
Toward. I want to make the U17's Swans Team, and that will be a hard challenge, but it's where I need to head
