Jack Martin was selected with the first pick in the 2012 AFL Mini Draft after exciting recruiters at the 2012 Under 18 National Carnival.
After winning Gold Coast’s NEAFL Best and Fairest in 2013, Martin made his AFL debut in Round 1 of 2014. A shoulder injury at the start of the game sidelined Jack for 12 weeks but he returned to finish the season with 11 games, including a four-goal, 19 disposal performance which earned him a Rising Star nomination.
Martin continued to excite over the following seasons, playing 97 games and kicking 81 goals over 7 years on the Gold Coast.
At the end of the 2019 season, Martin joined the Carlton Football Club. He made his debut for the Blues in Round 1 of 2020 with 4 goals, and celebrated his 100th AFL game shortly after.
