Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -

Previous AFL Clubs: -
Junior Club: Palm Beach-Currumbin (Qld)
Draft History: 2017 Zone Selection (Gold Coast)

Jacob Dawson played three AFL games in his first season with the SUNS and showed he has what it takes at senior level. Playing as an inside midfielder, Dawson was given a baptism of fire when he debuted against the Hawks and played on eventual Brownlow medallist Tom Mitchell. He averaged 15 disposals in his three games and kicked one goal.

In the NEAFL, Dawson was a proven ball-winner and regularly eclipsed the 30-disposal mark. His strong form there resulted in him finishing second amongst SUNS in the NEAFL MVP Award with 32 votes. Dawson is behind AFL regulars David Swallow, Touk Miller and others for a senior spot but if he can replicate his 2018 NEAFL form he will be knocking on the door for more games in the AFL this season.
