ADELAIDE recruit Shane McAdam will wear the No.23 guernsey made famous by Crows great Andrew McLeod.
McAdam, 23, is the fourth consecutive indigenous player to don the jumper for the Crows, also following in the footsteps of Jared Petrenko and Brisbane forward Charlie Cameron.
"I feel so privileged … obviously 23 has been worn by McLeod and a lot of great Indigenous players before me," McAdam told afc.com.au.
"It gives me a lot of pride … everyone watched McLeod growing up and he won every award there is.

"As much as I want to make other players who have worn it proud, I also want to make it my own now and make the most of the opportunity."
McAdam was listed by Adelaide as part of the deal that saw Crows forward Mitch McGovern become a Carlton player under special compensation rules to assist the struggling Blues and Gold Coast.
