Murray Zeuschner commenced with Footscray in 1962, having played previously with both Horsham and Stony Creek. He proved to be a handy acquisition for the Bulldogs, for whom he made 64 senior VFL appearances in half a dozen seasons, kicking four goals. Athletic, Iithe and an accomplished aerialist, Zeuschner was equally effective as a ruckman or occupying any of a number of defensive positions.
