Off the field and on the field they’re really good and told me where to go, how to get things done, it really helps so they’ve been awesome.

Like most Year 12 students, Callum Ah Chee couldn't knock back the opportunity to celebrate alongside his graduating school leavers.

Due to his high school ball and graduation, the No 8 pick in this year's national draft arrived to Metricon Stadium a week later than his fellow draftees, but the West Australian hasn't put a foot wrong in his first AFL pre-season.

Speaking to SUNS TV following last week’s Members Pre-Christmas Training, the prodigious West Australian talent was full of praise for his new teammates.
 
“They’ve been really good,” Ah Chee said.
 
“Off the field and on the field they’re really good and told me where to go, how to get things done, it really helps so they’ve been awesome.”
 
When asked whether there were specific individuals that had helped him settle in, Ah Chee spoke highly of the entire group.
 
“I think the good thing at the SUNS is that everyone’s really good with that (being a positive influence),” he said.
 
“They’re all leaders and everyone helps everyone out so no-one specific but everyone’s really good.”
 
The 18-year-old is hopeful of following in the footsteps of Touk Miller and Adam Saad in 2015 and playing regular senior football, but his focus at this stage of the pre-season is improving his fitness base.
 
“I think just work on my areas of improvement and get fitter, stronger,” he said.
 
“So I guess I can use my strengths a bit more and hopefully play a few games so we’ll see how we go.”
