Karas Notches Game 150

Toronto Dingos veteran Mike Karas played his 150th AFLO game against the Rebels in last week’s Grand Final.

Karas debuted in 2001 as a hard-at-it defender and after cementing his spot in the team became a pivotal player during the premiership three-peat years. And through the 22 years at the club he’s won a number of awards, coached, been part of the executive team and is now chasing one more flag as a half-forward flanker.

“Mikey is one of those guys that you want in your football club. He’s very giving of his time. He’ll help rookies, assist coaches, and store club equipment at his house. And he’s always working on his own personal game through extra fitness and skill sessions which is why he's been able to play as long as he has,” said Toronto Dingos president Justin Robertson. “Every team he’s played on he’s always been admired by the playing group, someone they look up to, and he’s able to have impact on and off the field. I hope he plays another 50.” Let’s look back at the Mike Karas files over the last 22 years:

  • Debuted for the Dingos in 2001

  • Premiership player 2003, 2004, 2005

  • Member of the Executive in 2015-17 as recruitment director

  • Head Coach 2017, 2018

  • Coaches Award 2005, 2008

  • Steinberg Clubman Award 2016

  • Best and Fairest 2008

Karas’ 150th game milestone makes him the 9th Dingos player to ever record the special feat.

Congratulations Mike!
