Jack was drafted by the West Coast Eagles with pick 38 during the 2017 NAB AFL 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, Jack earned himself a spot at the National Draft Combine – which is where he completed the draft’s fastest 20m sprint of 2.82 seconds.
Jack was tainted 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, Jack was called for his senior debut against Fremantle. 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. Considering the current state of the dominant Eagles, Jack is making significant impact in one of the league’s most dangerous teams; terrific signs early.
