Player Bio

At a Glance

Player Honours: 
Brownlow Medal: 
Previous AFL Club: 
Junior Club: Henley Sharks (SA), Woodville West Torrens (SANFL)
Draft History: 2018 NAB AFL National Draft 1st Round selection, No.2 overall. 

A key forward with an ability to shift a game with his athleticism, running ability, footy smarts and elite ball use, Jack Lukosius has performed well and proven himself at senior level all year. The 195cm prospect is a natural player who reads the game well, and uses his burst of speed to get off the mark and away from opponents. He's one of the best kicks to come through the draft in recent years – in the field and with his goalkicking. 

Some recruiters believe Lukosius could also start as a defender, where he played at times this year, because of his reading of the play and clean hands. The 18-year-old South Australian models his game on Hawthorn star Jack Gunston, and it's a good comparison. Both use their running capacity to work up the ground and convert their chances around goal.
