A classic country footballer from a farm in South Australia's South-East, Will Gould is as tough as nails with leadership and maturity beyond his years.
Growing up amongst fields of cattle and sheep, Gould is as at home on the farm as he is on the football field.
The eldest of three siblings, Gould represented Lucindale as a junior, before he became a boarder at Prince Alfred College.
In 2018 Gould represented South Australia in the Under 18 National Championships, earning All-Australian selection for his performances throughout the carnival.
He backed this up in 2019, earning his second All-Australian while captaining the South Australian side.
If his draft year of 2019 was not busy enough, Gould spent the year playing league football with Glenelg. The side went on to with the SANFL Premiership, Gould a vital cog in their defence and gaining experience playing against men.
Gould ended 2019 hearing his name called out by the Sydney Swans, and spent the 2020 season learning first-hand from some of the best defenders in the game.
