TLA draftees begin AFL journey as Matt Rowell goes #1
After years of hard work, anticipation, and ultimately excitement, TLA recently saw 30 of our young footballers take the first step in their AFL careers after being picked up in the NAB AFL Draft and NAB AFL Rookie Draft.
A tremendous result, the crop of youngsters included the No #1 pick, Matt Rowell drafted to the Gold Coast Suns, as well as other first-round picks in Luke Jackson (#3 to Melbourne), Brodie Kemp (#17 to Carlton), Sam De Koning (#19 to Geelong), Sam Philp (#20 to Carlton) and Thomson Dow (#21 to Richmond).
The reactions of their families and friends perhaps say it best…
TLA’s talent team have been fantastic in signing these guys over the last few years and are now looking forward to watching them develop and continue to chase their dreams.
