Player Bio

Silver
BigFooty Hawks

So impressive was his start to 2017 at VFL level, the contested-ball beast was given a three-game stint at AFL level in the middle of the season and, in his debut game at the SCG against the Swans, kicked an important goal in a great Hawthorn win. His season was cut short by shoulder surgery, but the Hawks saw enough to extend his contract by 12 months.
