A prolific ball-magnet with a terrific workrate, Keays was one of several Brisbane Lions Academy products to make their way on to AFL list in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft.

Capable of pushing forward and kicking goals, Keays averaged almost 29 possessions per game in the 2015 NAB AFL Under 18 Championships to earn an impressive trio of individual awards – a second straight All Australian berth, the Harrison Medal for Best Player in Division 2 at the titles and Queensland’s Most Valuable Player award.

A lifelong Lions fan, the Gregory Terrace graduate had an excellent debut season, playing 16 games in a defensive forward role, where his team orientated play was quick to impress fans and teammates. Expect his game to grow further under new Coach Chris Fagan in 2017.
