Ebony Marinoff was a standout underage player in the Adelaide amateur league and state representative sides, so it was no surprise she was snapped up in the inaugural AFLW Draft with the Adelaide Crows first selection, pick 7 overall.
In 2017 Marinoff made her debut in Round 1, Season 1 of the AFLW. An integral part of the Crows midfield, Marinoff played every game including the winning Grand Final, gaining All-Australian selection and the Rising Star award along the way. She finished the season leading the league in tackles and tackles per game. In the AFLW ‘off-season’, Marinoff played with the Darebin Falcons in the VFLW, again tasting premiership success and uniquely winning an AFLW and VFLW premiership in the same year.
The 2018 season saw Marinoff set an AFL/AFLW record of the most tackles in a game with 21. Once again she finished the season leading the competition in tackles and average tackles per game.
In 2019 Marinoff and the Adelaide Crows were back to their Premiership winning ways, with a dominating performance in the Grand Final earning them their second AFLW Premiership. Marinoff was named in the All-Australian side, finished equal-fourth in the league Best and Fairest count, and led the competition in kicks and disposals. In Round 3 Marinoff collected 33 disposals against Geelong, breaking the league record.
Marinoff has lined up in every game the Crows AFLW side has played, with 24 career games and counting.
