    PRIDE OF SA

    Name: Lewis Young

    Club: Sturt

    Age: 17

    Height: 197cm

    Weight: 90kg

    Position: Ruckman/Forward
    CLUB SAYS

    “Lewis has great character and is a player who has tremendous upside. He’s still raw but he’s an excellent size, has terrific speed and agility for his height and can mark the ball well. We’ve already seen a big improvement in him this year and with time he could develop into something special.’’





    Extracted from HS:

    IN four hours of exhilarating power and athleticism, giant Sturt teenager Lewis Young went from draft smoky to turning heads.

    Having already caught the eye of a handful of AFL clubs, the 197cm, 90kg former basketballer has been one of the most scrutinised and interviewed players in recent weeks after a standout display at the SA Draft Combine.

    Young, 17 and only eligible for the draft by 11 days, blew clubs away with his 2.97 second time for the 20m run — second-best of the 17 players who tested, behind only South Adelaide’s Dylan Whimpress (2.91).

    He also was a standout in the vertical jump.

    Young’s “wow’’ factor has seen 12 clubs interview him in the lead-up to the draft.

    A late bloomer after focusing more on basketball — he played at under-16 State level — than football until last year, Young’s blistering speed and athleticism for his height has clubs excited by his potential.

    “I was pleased with my combine, a lot of clubs seemed happy with my athletic work,’’ said Young, who played one league game for premier Sturt last season against North Adelaide in round 21.

    “I’m pretty raw in football terms because I’ve only made football my priority in the past two seasons and have progressed from under-16s through to league footy pretty quickly.

    “But clubs seem to be looking at my upside and thinking where I might be in three years.

    “I still need to put on some weight but I think I’ve got the potential to improve a lot.’’

    Young, who made this year’s State under-18 team under the guidance of SANFL high performance manager Brenton Phillips, is modelling his game on rising Melbourne star, key forward Jesse Hogan.

    “Unless I keep growing I’ll probably be too small to play as a ruckman in the AFL so I’m working on my key forward work, including my goalkicking,’’ Young said.

    “I think I’m pretty versatile and could also play down back or as a high half-forward.’’

    As one of this year’s draft bolters and youngest players in the pool, Young is not concerned where he might fall in the drafts, as long as he finds an AFL home.

    “The number doesn’t matter,’’ he said.

    “Clubs tell me that once you walk in the door the pick number is insignificant and that whether you are pick one or pick 100 all players are on an even keel.

    “It’s been my dream since I was a little kid to be a professional sportsman and if I do get selected it will be the best day of my life.’

    Some fantastic combine numbers. We are going big tonight.
    He'll wrap you in his arms, Tell you that you've been a good boy.
    He'll rekindle all the dreams, It took you a lifetime to destroy.
    He'll reach deep into the hole, Heal your shrinking soul. But there won't be a single thing that you can do.
    He's a god, he's a man, He's a ghost, he's a guru.
    They're whispering his name. Through this disappearing land. But hidden in his coat Is a red right hand.

    Great. I need one more thing. Soda. Yeah, I don't want my guys paying for soda. I want you to stock my machine for three years. I'm serious.

    A really intriguing skillset.. Absolutely fits a need but is going to need time. We've really gone long this draft.
