Player Bio

At a glance

Drafted: 2017 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Melbourne) No. 31 overall.
Recruited from: Coldstream (Vic)/Casey Demons (VFL)

The dynamic small forward was well known to Melbourne’s recruiters after a standout season with the Casey Demons in 2017. Booted 42 goals in 19 games, finishing fifth on the VFL’s goalkicking table. Fritsch, 186cm and 82kg, reads the ball well in flight and is good overhead as a medium forward. Expect him to push for a senior spot straight away.
