Which AFL team do you support and how did you come to barrack for them?
I barrack for the Power and the way I showed that was by being a member and having their merchandise.

In his own words
What type of player are you?
A speedy and competitive player who will run and carry and break lines. A type of player who will push back hard to get to the contests to help as teammate. I will compete and persevere until the very end. Everything is for the benefit of the team.

Which AFL player do you feel you resemble and why?
David Wojcinski and Heath Shaw. Their ability to carry the ball forward and break lines but also the mental strength to be able to push back into defence quickly, then do it all again with little break.

Speed and the ability to run and carry and break lines. Vision and decision making. On-field leadership is also an area where I am improving all the time.

Kicking when I’m tired and also taking more risks.

Which AFL team do you support and how did you come to barrack for them?
Adelaide Crows. I've lived here all my life and the rest of the family barracks for the Crows too.

Who has been the biggest influence on your career so far, and why?
My parents, coaches, and Mark Mackenzie at WWTFC for his approachability, ability to give advice and answer questions. Bryce Gibbs - after not making the U16 state team he spoke to me and told me never to give up, follow my dreams, try new things and try every little thing which can help me to be better than the next person. Also Vasily Grischenkov, not just for athletics, but also the life lessons he taught me.
