A capable half forward flanker who was also quite adaptable, and could readily undertake other roles, Don McKenzie was solid and reliable rather than replete with talent. He joined Footscray from local side Spotswood, and played a total of 137 VFL games and kicked 128 goals between 1962 and 1970. After leaving the Bulldogs, he captain-coached Sunshine to the 1972 VFA second division premiership and won the Liston Trophy in first division the following year. His time with the Crows spanned the years 1971 to 1974 and saw him play 40 games and score 107 goals. He later had two stints as coach of Footscray.
