At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: -
Previous AFL Club: -
Junior Club: Springwood (QLD)
Draft History:2011 NAB AFL Draft local talent access selection (Gold Coast) No. 88 overall.

Sexton played 20 games in 2017 in a variety of positions. He was tested on the wing, off half-back and as a high half-forward, averaging 16 disposals and five marks across the season.

The 24-year-old has a thumping right boot and is capable of breaking lines with his speed and exceptional endurance. Sexton has played predominately forward throughout the pre-season and looks set to play in that part of the ground exclusively under Stuart Dew in 2018.
