A competitive, athletic forward with strong contested marking, Ollie Lord joins one of the competitions best forward lines after being drafted to Port Adelaide.
The grandson of Geelong Brownlow Medal winner Alistair Lord, Ollie Lord spent his senior school years as a boarder at Geelong Grammar. Playing in the APS system, Lord played a series of NAB league games, Vic Metro Under 17’s and the Future’s All-Stars game prior to 2020.
With a Covid interrupted 2020 season, Lord impressed recruiters with his dedication to training on his own and returned to training sessions late in the year with new found aerobic capacity and strength.
Drafted to Port Adelaide, Lord looms as a key forward prospect and will learn off some of the competitions best forwards.
