Athleticism is Goodyear’s strong suit, as he has a great turn of foot and elite endurance. The former Calder Cannon averaged 14 disposals in 16 VFL appearances in his first year in the black and white. Rarely fazed by the occasion, he is a great decision-maker. His kicking still needs work, but the Magpies are excited by his scope for improvement. 

Season By Season

Season By Season

In his first year on an AFL list, Goodyear managed 16 VFL games and proved his growth with each appearance.

He rotated through the wing and midfield, with appearances at half forward also scattered through what was at times an inconsistent season.

Goodyear's rewards came at season's end, when he was named emergency for the first time in his short career ahead of Collingwood's final round match against Essendon.

This came after a string of impressive VFL performances which saw the 19-year-old won 25 and 24 possessions against Richmond and Port Melbourne respectively in the final stages of the VFL season.

Season By Season

An extremely athletic medium midfielder with elite speed and endurance. Goodyear was a prolific ball winner at the Cannons and had a taste of the National Under-18 Championships playing in three matches, averaging 13 disposals in limited game time. His drive and rebound from half-back as well as through the midfield often breaks the game open.
