Jamie Cripps was drafted by the St. Kilda Football Club with the 24th pick in the 2010 AFL Draft. An impressive pre-season resulted in Cripps making his debut in round 6 of the 2011 season, kicking his first and second career goals in his first senior match.
Unfortunately after 4 senior games a severe calf injury later diagnosed as compartment syndrome interrupted what was destined to be an impressive debut season.
At the end of the 2012 season Jaime was traded to the West Coast Eagles where he relished the fresh start and new playing structures.
Cripps had a solid 2013 season playing a career high 15 games and kicking 12 goals for his new club. Since then Cripps has gone on to be an important part of the Eagles line up, applying immense pressure and often hitting the score board.
The versatile half-forward had a career-best season in 2018. Played every game and set new career benchmarks for goals, disposals, contested possessions, uncontested possessions and mark inside 50. Booted six bags of three goals, booting multiple goals on 11 occasions. Cripps finished the season winning the AFL Premiership over Collingwood where he had 16 disposals, 4 tackles and a goal. His consistent season was rewarded with fourth place in the John Worsfold medal.
