Finally 21, and legally able to do everything I’ve been doing since I was 15!
Born in the North-West town of Potchefstroom, today, twenty one years ago, I am sure his parents, Dries and Delia, had big dreams for their bundle of joy! All 4,860 kg of him! Although I have learned that it was only around Grade 11, that the once short and stocky bloke all of a sudden shot up and became the gentle giant he is now.
In the case of this fantastic family, I think success has come well deserved. Through hard work and perseverance, because I am sure, dissapointment there was plenty of.
Not only has Marcell turned out to be a sensational player, someone a team can rely on to give 100% all the time, but he is also a guy with values and his head straight on his shoulders! And I have experienced that for myself. Humble. Down to earth. And A SHARK!
Dries and Delia, congratulations on your son turning 21! We at Sharksworld wish to congratulate you on a job bloody well done! You can be truly proud. As we are!
Today is special because you’re 21
Today brings a chance
to look towards the future
new dreams, new successes.
To a bright new tomorrow
waiting for YOU!
We wish you great heights in your career as well as in your personal life. May the injury fairy stay far away and may the Bok fairy be very close by! Always stay true to yourself.
And if I may give you a little advice: The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.
