VFL R9: Coach Bailey on the win Max Bailey was happy with the win on the weekend.

Jacob Koschitzke

Draft pick 52 from Murray Bushrangers

VFL Games: 4

Jacob Koschitzke was taken with the Hawks first pick in last year’s draft.

The 196cm key position player has played four games at Box Hill so far, mainly in defence.

During those games he has often been the Hawks’ key defender and faced some big challenges, particularly in Round 6 against Footscray when he matched up on AFL players Tom Boyd and Josh Schache.

In that match Koschitzke kept the two tall forwards to just three goals combined.

 

Mat Walker

Draft pick 63 from Murray Bushrangers

VFL Games: 5

Mat Walker is a creative forward capable of taking strong contested marks.

So far this season he has played five games at Box Hill where he has kicked six goals and had a number of goal assists.

Walker is an exciting athlete with elite speed and goal sense and had been extremely consistent in his performances for the Hawks to date.

Damon Greaves

Rookie Draft pick 14 from East Perth

VFL Games: 8

Damon Greaves was taken with the Hawks with their first pick in the Rookie Draft.

Greaves has played every game for the Box Hill Hawks this season playing in an array of different positions across his eight games.

The 19-year-old seems to have found his place in defence playing off the half back, where he is becoming more and more comfortable each week.

He’s reliable in one-on-one contests and his best game was in Round 4 where he collected 16 disposals and five marks.

 

Will Golds

Rookie Draft pick 30 from Oakleigh Chargers

VFL Games: 8

Will Golds was Hawthorn’s second pick in the Rookie draft and has played every game this season for Box Hill.

Golds is an exceptional runner and has found a home on the wing where he has been creative by foot.

The 19-year-old has found plenty of the footy so far this year, collecting double figures in disposals in every game except one.

His best game was in Round 4 where he had 20 disposals, had 11 marks and kicked two goals.
