The ‘American Pie’ began to realise his enormous potential last year when he became crucial to the Pies’ forward structure. The beanpole forward/ruckman, a Collingwood cult figure, had a horror start to the season in the loss to Hawthorn and was also suspended for a game, but returned to kick 25 goals and play a key role in the premiership bid. His best-afield, three-goal preliminary final performance in the win over Richmond, when he took contested marks at will, will long be remembered. Was third at the club in one-percenters.


Draft history: 2015 Rookie Draft International selection (Collingwood) No. 60; 2017 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Collingwood).
