Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: 2nd best and fairest 2013; 3rd best and fairest 2014.
Brownlow Medal: 2014 votes 13; career votes 22.
Draft History:  2010 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Gold Coast) No. 9 overall.

Continued on from his breakthrough 2013 season with another prolific campaign last year.

Prestia is on the cusp of the competition’s elite after playing every game and finishing third in the best and fairest – his second placing in succession.

The vice-captain is a ball magnet who works relentlessly in both directions to help his team.

He averaged 27 disposals a game (15th in the AFL) and was also top 20 for clearances with 119. He has continued to work on his foot skills, which improved last season, in addition to kicking a career-high 10 goals for the year.
