He was voted most improved for the Thirds in 1970, and in the following season was vice-captain of the Thirds in their Premiership year. Olsen made his League debut against Port Adelaide in Round 10, 1972, on the Alberton Oval - the Redlegs running out easy winners, 16.20 to 7.20. Playing mainly as a wingman, or ruck-rover, Olsen was a very good mark and accurate kick.

He had played for Norwood at Under 18 and Reserves level in 2017.
