Jack was a ruckman and defender. Recruited from Traralgon he spent seven seasons with Richmond. He was a strong, well-built player who wasn't afraid of "getting" the hard ball. He was rated by Jack Dyer as one of the best wet weather footballers he saw. The fact that Jack had large hands certainly assisted him picking up the ball in the wet. He was a member of the 1943 Premiership side and the 1942 and 1944 Grand Final sides. He also ran second in Richmond's 1943 Best and Fairest award. He returned to live in the Latrobe Valley after his league career ended. He was twice selected to play with Footscray in 1946, but on both occasions he was a last minute withdrawal from the side. His brother David, played for the Richmond Thirds.
Jack received a posthumous life membership for being a member of Richmond's 1943 Premiership side. His awarded by accepted by Bill Scott Jnr in August 2017.
