Jack Petruccelle was drafted by the West Coast Eagles with pick 38 during the 2017 National Draft. Regarded for his elite pace, agility as well as his ability in the air and ground, Petruccelle offers the Eagles great versatility to their list. After an outstanding season with the Northern Knights, Petruccelle earned himself a spot at the National Draft Combine – which is where he completed the draft’s fastest 20m sprint of 2.82 seconds.
Petruccelle was touted as one of the most exciting players of the draft as his sheer athleticism, when paired with his daring game-style, creates a unique and highly promising future player.
After impressing in the WAFL with West Coast’s affiliate side, East Perth, Petruccelle was called for his senior debut against Fremantle in round 6 of 2018. However, it was in Jack’s second game against Port Adelaide that the young talent showed his best, kicking two goals and showcasing his raw speed around the ground. Petruccelle has worked on his endurance to compliment his speed, allowing him to cement a spot in one of the leagues most dominant teams.
