A Rising Star who is now regarded as one of the strongest midfielders in the competition, Jaeger O’Meara has been catching the eye of onlookers from an early age.

Bio

As a 16 year old playing amongst men in Western Australia’s Great Northern Football League, O’Meara was judged best on ground in the 2010 Grand Final. From there he was recruited to the WAFL, before the Gold Coast Suns signed O’Meara as a 17 year old in the 2011 mini draft. Too young to play an official AFL game for the Suns, O’Meara spent a year developing in the professional environment before he was finally unleashed in the 2013 season. It was not long before he became a key player in the midfield and was awarded the 2013 Rising Star.

Another successful season followed in 2014, before O’Meara was struck down with injury which kept him on the sidelines for 2015 and 2016. Ahead of the 2017 season O’Meara requested a trade to Hawthorn which saw him add just six games in his first year at the club. The conservative approach taken to ease O’Meara back from injury has paid dividends now seeing him play 21 games in both 2018 and 2019, and shoulder the midfield load of a developing group. O’Meara was voted in to the leadership group in 2019, and was named Vice-Captain and played his 100th game in 2020.

O’Meara is an Adidas Ambassador and has worked with Polished man in 2020

He’s become such an important player for us, not only through his on-field performance but also from a leadership sense as well, – Graham Wright 2019 (GM Football Hawthorn FC)
