Adelaide Football Club - Crows History Locker

The Jack Titus Award recognises outstanding service at club level.

It is named after the former Richmond great and long serving administrator, an Australian Football Hall of Fame member.

Popular Adelaide Crows stalwart Barrie Downs received the 2013 Jack Titus Award.

Downs, widely known as “BJ”, had been with the Adelaide Football Club as team manager since it joined the AFL in 1991.

However, his involvement in South Australian football dated back to 1952 when he started playing for the South Adelaide Football Club. He later served South at committee level before joining West Adelaide, where he spent a further 22 years in administration and football roles.

John Condon OAM was awarded the Jack Titus Award in 2017. He had nearly 60 years of commitment to the game across the Prospect, North Adelaide and Adelaide football clubs.

“Malcolm Blight says it is the non-players’ Brownlow Medal,” Condon told The Advertiser. “I feel very privileged to have been part of a great game – and very privileged to be honoured in this way.”
