Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Brighton Grammar
Debut: 2009
Recruited from: Sandringham U18
Brownlow Votes: 1

Probably his best season for the Demons, finishing 10th in the best and fairest and showing improvement. He started the season with a burst off half-back, but could not sustain it. By season's end, a few answers had been found to what makes him tick. He was rotated more often on and off the bench, allowing him to maintain his intensity for longer, and he showed he could play a variety of roles either in defence, as a high half-forward or even on the wing.

Brownlow Medal: career votes 7.

Draft history: 2008 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Melbourne) No. 1 overall.
