He was appointed captain on November 23, 2012, for the 2013 season. he was only 22 years old at the time and became Richmond’s youngest ever captain in over 100 years.
However, Richmond confirmed that Cotcin has stepped down as captain ahead of the 2022 season, reported ABC News. Tigers coach Damien Hardwick said that Trent will still be an important leader for the team in the coming season regardless of title.
The news came months after Cotchin almost left his match in the annual Dreamtime clash agiasnt Essendon at Optus Stadium in Perth.
One of his daughters was ill and he wanted to fly back to Melbourne to be with her. However, his wife, Brooke begged him not to come home because of the fear of backlash she’d receive from the fans if he did not attend the match.
Cotchin stayed back, not because Brooke asked but because his daughter wanted him to play the match.
