Callum was recruited by the Collingwood Magpies as a father-son selection during the 2016 NAB AFL Draft. Following in the footsteps of his father, Gavin Brown, former captain and premiership player, Callum has made significant inroads to his time at the club, amounting 5 games in his debut season.
Prior to be drafted, Callum played predominately as a midfielder for the Eastern Ranges and later a midfielder in the u18 Vic Metro team. After a very successful NAB u18 Championship carnival, averaging 18 disposals over 4 games, Callum made his way into the u18 All-Australian. Over the 2016 season, he developed immensely, displaying great poise and decision-making under pressure.
Callum debuted for Collingwood in round 12 against Melbourne Demons, where he collected 16 disposals and 2 tackles. Callum finished the season in round 23, again against Melbourne where he amounted a career-high of 19 disposals. Callum will now look towards the 2018 season where he will hope to play more frequently in the side’s very competitive senior team.
