Junior Club: Cairns Saints/Palm Beach-Currumbin (Qld)/ Gold Coast SUNS Academy
Draft History: 2018 Rookie Draft Gold Coast Academy Selection
Previous AFL clubs: - 

A lightning-quick small forward, Jacob Heron hails from Cairns and moved to the Gold Coast midway through last year to increase his time with the SUNS Academy and NEAFL team. Heron played his junior footy at Cairns Saints, where he and Jack Bowes were often in the same team.

The 18-year-old loves to exert defensive pressure and is the quickest player at the SUNS, giving coach Stuart Dew plenty to work with. He can kick goals and showed he likes the big games when he collected 26 disposals in a NEAFL elimination final against the NT Thunder last year. The Academy product will be pushing for a senior debut in 2018.
