Sam Docherty





Phillip Island, Victoria


Phillip Island / Gippsland Power / Carlton


Carlton Best and Fairest – 2016

All Australian – 2017


The Brisbane Lions selected Sam Docherty with the 12th pick in the 2011 NAB AFL Draft after impressing in the second half of the Under 18 National Championships. Due to a mixture of injuries and form Docherty couldn’t string together a full season for the Lions and requested a trade back to Victoria following the 2013 season which would see him arrive at Carlton.

Since then Docherty has excelled both on and off the field where he has gone on to play 92 games, win a club best and fairest in 2016, be selected in the All-Australian team in 2017 and now be named co-captain of the Blues beside Patrick Cripps.

Unfortunately Docherty has suffered two consecutive ACL injuries which will see him miss the 2019 season but Docherty’s professionalism and character will hopefully see him back to his best and leading the Blues in 2020.
