Bill Becker

Tall utility player whose father was a pioneer of the game in Queensland. His father was also a leather goods manufacturer who supplied the “Sandow” brand footballs that were used in that era in Queensland. He was described as a ‘good mark, accurate kick and a cool, heady player’.

Twice won the De Little Medal and was a cornerstone of the strong South Brisbane team of the 1920s and early ’30s. Represented Queensland over a nineyear period from 1924-32. Had a year in rugby league but was won back by Australian

Football. Like Clem Ryan, with whom he played for 9 years in the Queensland team, he passed away in 1957 at the age of 50.
