The Gold Coast SUNS have capped off a busy two nights of the 2019 NAB AFL National Draft period by selecting Jy Farrar with Pick 60.
Farrar, who turns 23 in just over a week, has largely gone under the radar during his football career.
The 190cm utility is originally from Kimberley in far north Western Australia, but moved to country Victoria to play football before relocating again to Adelaide.
It was there playing division two football for Scotch Old Collegians in the SAAFL that Farrar first caught the notice of recruiters.
He played the majority of his football off on a wing or off half-back, kicking 10 goals in 15 games and being named in the best on 12 occasions.
Farrar possesses eye-catching athleticism and explosiveness, traits which saw him selected to play two SANFL games as an Adelaide Crows development-listed player.
Unlike other talented players in this year’s draft pool, Farrar does not boast the same underage or state-league representative accolades, but has shown he has the tools to succeed.
The 22-year-old is also a cousin of Gold Coast AFLW player Kitara Whap-Farrar.
Farrar will join his fellow draftees on the Gold Coast for pre-season training on Monday.
