2019, April 15, West Australian, Story and photos “Waterman dream still alive” and photo of Alec Waterman caught in a tackle by West Perth’s Kris Shannon.  Young West Coast forward Jake Waterman dreams of one day playing with his brother Alec in the blue and gold. The proud Waterman couldn’t wait to check the Claremont score after the Eagle’s maiden WAFL victory over Peel Thunder at Optus Oval with his sibling up for his first league appearance in nearly 4 years.  Alec was midway through his first season when he was struck down with glandular fever and a post-viral fatigue illness.
