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 Jack made his AFL debut in Rd 1 2014 against Richmond. Unfortunately a shoulder injury at the start of the game sidelined Jack for 12 weeks but true to his character returned to play 11 matches including a four-goal, 19 disposal performance which earned him the Rising Star nomination for that round.
Jack continued to excite over the 2016 & 2017 seasons where he played 43 games and kicked 38 goals which led him to become a vital cog in the Gold Coast line up.
Unfortunately 2018 saw just 15 games due to injury but a full pre-season has Jack in good stead for a strong 2019.
