Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: 3rd best and fairest 2015; co-captain 2017-present.
Brownlow Medal: 2016 votes 5; career votes 10.
Junior club: Southern Districts (NT)/ Melbourne Grammar (Vic) /NT U18
Draft History:
2010 local talent access selection (Gold Coast)

In 2016 Steven May continued to stamp himself as one of the game’s best full-backs – right in the conversation behind Alex Rance and Jeremy McGovern.

He was magnificent in the second half of the year, not only shutting down his own opponent, but improving his ability to take intercept marks. He was a standout in wins over St Kilda and Fremantle and produced a heroic showing in a narrow loss to Greater Western Sydney. He had more than 20 disposals and 10 marks in each of those outings. At 25 the respected leader has been appointed captain and is a linchpin to Gold Coast’s future.
