From: Murray Bushrangers

Bio: Mobile tall defender with strong overhead marking ability. Takes the game on and shows initiative. Impressed as a 19-year-old in four matches for Vic Country in NAB AFL Under-18 Championships, averaging 17 disposals, four marks, two tackles and two clearances at 76 per cent efficiency. Played 11 games in the TAC Cup, averaging 19 touches. Was equal-second in kicking test (28/30) at NAB AFL Draft Combine.

What Recruiting and List Manager Graham Wright said: "He’s a half back/midfielder with outstanding courage, great hands, great vision and kicks the ball really well. He’s another one who’s a really good athlete, a good endurance athlete and we think in time he’ll go into the midfield even though he might start at half back. But we feel in time he can go through the midfield."
