Player Profile

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: -
Junior Club: Mitcham Hawks (SA)/ South Adelaide (SANFL)
Draft History: 2015 Rookie Draft selection (Gold Coast) No. 42; 2015 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Gold Coast); 2017 Rookie Draft selection (Gold Coast) No. 4

Mature-age ruckman Keegan Brooksby was recruited to play primarily in the NEAFL, but snagged eight AFL games in his second season, playing a variety of roles. With Daniel Currie and Tom Nicholls fighting out the No. 1 ruck role, Brooksby spent extra time developing as a key defender, which came in handy during the middle of the season.

Super competitive and always willing to learn, the South Australian is proving himself a valuable commodity with his improving versatility.
