"I’m humbled because, me being a Richmond premiership captain, is on the back of not just the 21 other guys that took the field with me, but mountains of work of other players, staff, coaches, the administration. And, as a lot of the guys have mentioned, the important role your partners play. I get to carry that title (Richmond premiership captain) for the rest of my life, but it’s because of the work that goes on behind the scenes.” (RFC Oct 11 2017)
Cotchin became the first Richmond player to captain a premiership (2017), and also win a Brownlow Medal (2012).
