Jackson for Academy
AN EAST Fremantle footballer will get the chance to impress AFL talent scouts after he was selected to the 2017-18 AFL Academy Squad.
East Fremantle Football Club’s Luke Jackson, who also plays for Bullcreek Leeming Junior Football Club, was one of just three WA players selected for the Level One academy.
All 22 national players selected receive an AFL Academy scholarship under academy head coach Luke Power and will participate in accelerated football and personal development camps over the next 12 months.
South Fremantle’s Haiden Schloithe might get another crack at being on an AFL list after he was named in the State Draft Combine, while Sonia Dorizzi from South Fremantle’s women’s team was selected for the 2017 AFL Women’s Draft Combine.
