Player Profile

At A Glance

Player Honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2015
Brownlow Medal: 2016 votes 2; career votes 2
Junior Club: Maribyrnong Park (Vic)/ Calder Cannons U18
Draft History:  
2014 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Gold Coast) No. 29 overall.

Touk Miller quickly jumped the pecking order and became a staple of the SUNS’ midfield in 2016. An ankle injury set him back early last season, but once he found some continuity, he thrived. The young Victorian playing 18 games on the back of all 22 in his first season,  securing a permanent midfield role in the final eight weeks, averaging 28 disposals and six tackles.

No matter who is available to start season 2017, coach Rodney Eade says Miller has earned a spot in the starting midfield – a fair effort for a player with just two seasons under his belt. He is good in contested situations, a good decision-maker and, most importantly for the SUNS, a good ball-user.
