Comment

Schaefer played 102 games for South from 1947-53 and won the club’s best and fairest award in 1952. Best known as a brilliant exponent of the art of stab-kicking, Schaefer reached the pinnacle of his form in 1952 when he was a favourite to win the Brownlow Medal. Schaefer left South before the end of the 1953 season to coach Riverina club Deniliquin but he later returned to serve South as coach of the Fourths in 1957. See Jim Main, Honour the Names, p. 235. He also helped out with South’s Thirds in later fifties.
