Player Bio

Tall forward/defender who has solid speed and agility for his size and presents well as a leading target when forward. He has very quick hands showing good team orientation in passing quickly to teammates on the move. He suffered a knee injury playing for the Under-18 Australian team against the Casey Demons earlier in the year which set him back, playing just two games for Vic Metro. In the 2019 NAB AFL Under-18 Championships he averaged 9.5 disposals and five marks. A very neat kick for a 197cm key position player who turns 18-years-old this month.
