Ben Graham has encouraged
Anthony Rocca to chase his dream being an NFL punter, but says the task of breaking into the league will not be easy.
"Anthony has Sav in his corner, so that's a head start no one else can get," Graham said.
"You may only get one shot at it, and then it's the sacrifice and discipline and hurdles you face along the way. That might prevent a lot of people from pushing it further.
"I will never say to anyone don't give it a go, but then again I saw you don't want to completely turn your life upside-down for a dream that might not be there."
Former Geelong captain Ben Graham's NFL team, the Cardinals, lost at the Superbowl last year. This year his team is again headed towards the playoffs.
"Last year the experience through the playoffs and Superbowl was phenomenal. This year we are 7-4 and have a two-game lead in our division, so if someone had said to me at the start of the year this is where I would be, I would take it," Graham said.
