Yes thanks, Zips point is still valid re our low levels of Father Son success. Really Richo and Joel are the only ones who had significant careers
We've done OK with sons of players from other clubs, Shane Tuck, Ty Zantuck, (for a while), Andy Krakouer,

Article about Jackson Callow in Today's Age. Keen on karting when younger but footy now suits his body size. Played in the Tas state league this year.
Really like this kid.
Develop in the VFL in 21 and you would hope the kid can come on in 22 ( if Jack R calls it a day ).

We do well with Tasmanian forwards.

Some highlights of his year.

Decent size to him. Man-child. How will he translate that to AFL?

Does read a bit like a Man-child which always worries me, it says he is not the most athletic player going around and not sure how many genuine one-on-ones you get in AFL these days so I would prefer someone more mobile.

STRENGTHS:

Contested marking
Strength
Leading patterns
Set shot goalkicking
One-on-ones

IMPROVEMENTS:

Agility
Athleticism

HIGHLIGHTED TESTING RESULTS:

2020 Preseason Testing:
Standing Vertical Jump – 61cm
Running Vertical Jump (R/L) – 63cm/64cm
Speed (20m) – 3.08 seconds
Agility – 9.00 seconds

Will need to drop down to racing weight which will improve his speed and endurance.
Appears to have a funny gait/feet movement when running in to goal.


On the plus side in his highlights Callow displays football nous and anticipation (which is Jack,s best trick ~ seeing where the ball is going before anyone else)
So a footballing brain with good size and competitiveness. Good attributes for a key forward

As a final pick i would ve keen on Nick Martin.
Lets collect the set!

Nick Martin | Subiaco
3/04/2001 | 188cm | 81kg


A tall forward with good marking ability, Martin came on strongly as a 19-year-old prospect in 2020. He lead Subiaco’s goalkicking charts with a total of 13 and a full year of senior WAFL football has seen him stay in the draft conversation.

Trusting our recruiters were all over the U16's a couple of years ago and have identified some talent. The clubs with big recruiting resources who have invested in the younger age groups could benefit from this draft

Searched for JR8 results but couldn't find them but what I did find was a phantom draft having Collingwood taking Jack @ pick #8 and Richmond taking Ben Reid @ pick #13 :D

Think we will only pick two players in the Draft and hopefully MRJ goes as a Rookie, (although I'm sure someone will bid at some point).

Couldn’t find any combine results either but did stumble across some quotes from a North Melbourne recruiter about Jack that have aged liked milk.
