Dream Team Profile

2013 Digest:   A genuine “project” player whose experience of Aussie rules was limited to a few games as a kid. At 200cm he was recruited from a basketball background at Santa Clara University (USA) and showed some signs in the SANFL last year but still a fair way off. His attitude has impressed the Crows as he's a very diligent worker.

2013 NAB Cup:   Tall ex-basketballer with a good approach, but a long way off.
