Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: -
Junior Club: Kingborough (Tas)
Draft History:
 2015 NAB AFL Draft No. 52 overall.

Mackenzie Willis played three senior games last year, but spent most of his first season at the SUNS developing his craft in the NEAFL. The Tasmanian is strong-bodied and ideally plays in the midfield, but cut his teeth at half-back. He has the frame and temperament to succeed at the top level and with further emphasis on developing his skills in an elite environment will be able to crack the SUNS’ best 22.
