David Mackay became the 16th player to reach 200 games for the Club in 2018 in his 12th season of AFL football. Mackay was drafted in 2006 from the Oakleigh Chargers in the TAC Cup, having played a starring role for Vic Metro. He made 19 appearances in his debut season and won the Mark Bickley Emerging Talent Award. Evolving from a dashing midfielder into a more versatile utility, Mackay’s career has been built on resilience and he was rewarded with Life Membership at the Club in 2016. That same year he also received the Dr Brian Sando OAM Trophy for his outstanding professionalism and attention to detail.
Mackay remained a mark of consistency in 2019, as the utility averaged 17.2 disposals and an elite 3.3 rebound-50s per game. Against the Suns in Round Five, Mackay collected a season-high 23 disposals at an elite efficiency rating of 87 per cent. Alongside Brodie Smith, he recorded a game-high six inside-50s and four rebound-50s. Mackay ended the year with a top 10 finish in the Malcolm Blight Medal count.
