Cameron experienced the dream start to his AFL career, playing in the 1999 Kangaroos Premiership side after only 10 senior games. He was traded to Geelong at the end of the 1999 season, and appeared to relish the move.
Despite a frustrating beginning at Geelong, Cam eventually established himself as a valuable mobile ruckman and forward. He had a solid year in 2004, when he played all but one game in Geelong's rapid rise. Recovering from a disappointing start to the 2005 season due to injury, Cam played some of his best football during the finals showing his versatility playing up forward and through the midfield.
Cam ensured Geelong won the NAB Cup against Adelaide with his late goals in the 2006 NAB Cup and also celebrated his 100th game during the season. Off the field, Cam won Geelong’s Community Champion award for his efforts with sick kids.
In 2007 Can won his second premiership medal, kicking five goals in their Grand Final victory over Port Adelaide. He was named in the All-Australian team for the first time and won Geelong’s leading goal kicker trophy.
Determined to gain back to back Premierships, Mooney played in his third AFL Grand Final and led the AFL in score assists. Mooney was ranked fifth in the AFL with 201 marks, played for the Dream Team against Victoria in AFL Hall of Fame match and also registered his 150th AFL game.
A triple Premiership player, Mooney played in his third Premiership and fourth grand final during 2009. Mooney booted two key goals in their Grand Final victory over St Kilda and kicked his 250th career goal during the season.
Season 2010 saw Cam continually play a solid role for the Cats line-up. He was able to kick another 38 goals for the season as well as continually apply the forward pressure and fierce attack that he has been known for. He was able to play his 200th AFL game late in the season and will be looking to continually drive the Cats forward in season 2011.
Cam has been Geelong’s leading key forward for several seasons now and has made a significant impact on the team. He has the ability to take contested marks and create space for his small forwards and is still a very valuable contributor and a popular figure with Cats fans.
