Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal:

Junior Club: Gold Coast SUNS Academy/Palm Beach Currumbin (QLD)
Draft History:
  2017 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Gold Coast) No. 52 overall

Prized Gold Coast SUNS Academy product Brayden Crossley has been rewarded with a place on the senior list after his impressive NEAFL and QAFL seasons in 2017. Crossley played 10 games in the ruck for the SUNS NEAFL side last year where he averaged 20 hit outs, three tackles and one goal per game.

Standing at 198cm, Crossley is considered an undersized ruckman, but that didn’t stop the 18-year-old from collecting the Academy Player of the Year award at the SUNS’ 2017 Club Champion awards.

Crossley was MVP of the Allies at the U18 National Championships last year while also named as the U18 All Australian ruckman in an impressive campaign where he averaged 16 disposals and 27 hitouts across three games.
