Litherland enjoyed a fine season for Box Hill, but the settled nature of the Hawthorn backline meant he played just six AFL games. The defensive mix will change this year and Litherland, a tall running defender with a big tank and a booming kick, will be right in the mix to become a regular senior player. He was an emergency for the Grand Final, so his long apprenticeship at the Hawks looks like paying dividends.

Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 55 overall.
