From Grovedale, Michael Schulze played 91 V/AFL games and scored 12 goals for Geelong between 1985 and 1991. Normally deployed as a key position defender, there were few frills about his game, but he was honest and reliable. He played at centre half back in the Cats’ loss to Hawthorn in the 1989 grand final.
