A hard-running defender for the GIANTS, Adam Kennedy has been a reliable part of the GWS back six since day one.
Recruited by the GWS Giants during the 2011 NAB AFL Draft, Kennedy was initially overlooked in the 2010 draft despite being a prominent player in the National Championships for Vic Metro and the captain of the Western Jets. However, once drafted the following year, Kennedy proved his worth, debuted for the side in the opening round of his debut season in 2012. With 28 disposals and 11 marks, Kennedy made an outstanding impression on the team and followed with a further 14 games for the season.
The following two seasons, Kennedy found his place within the team, renown for playing on some of the greatest small forwards in the competition whilst also being played through the midfield.
A form slump saw Kennedy’s senior opportunities hard to come by in 2015, but rebounding in 2016 only until a tragic ACL injury struck him down in round 7 of 2017. So highly rated, the GIANTS showed their faith in the growing utility, signing him until the end of the 2020 season.
2018 saw Kennedy return from his ACL in the second half of the year where he managed nine senior games, showing that he still possessed his ball-winning ability and competitive spirit and electric pace.
