A utility in the true sense of the word, Whitecross is valuable to the Hawks because he can come in and play forward, back or through the midfield. He played eight games last season and was stiff to be dropped late in the year when, with the finals slipping away, the Hawks chose to get games into their young players. He had a fine season at Box Hill and was an invaluable mentor at VFL level. He remains contracted through to the end of this season. 

Brownlow Medal: career votes 2. 

Draft history: 2007 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 29 overall.
