O’Sullivan makes AFL draft combine

Kyneton's Jack O'Sullivan has been invited to this year's NAB AFL Draft Combine.

Kyneton’s Jack O’Sullivan is one of just 67 players invited to this year’s NAB AFL Draft Combine.

The midfielder/small forward played all of his junior football with the Kyneton Tigers and is the youngest of four brothers (Max played VFL for Richmond, Tommy played VFL for Port Melbourne, Ned currently plays for the Kyneton Tigers and was the 2021 Best and Fairest and won the coaches’ award).

Jack played for the Bendigo Pioneers in the U16 Squad and while at boarding school at Xavier College he played for the Xavier Firsts squad as well as in NAB League football with the Oakleigh Chargers.

“I’m really excited to show my strengths off the field, and really grateful for the opportunity,” Jack said of his draft combine invitation.

“Hopefully it will be a great experience. Although I still need to focus on the near future, which includes a lot of important games before I start looking too far ahead.”

Jack was selected to play for Victoria Country Under 19s this year and competed in the National Championships.

Unfortunately he broke his collarbone in the first few minutes of the first game against South Australia in Adelaide in late June.

His recovery is going well and he expects to play some finals games for the Oakleigh Chargers in September.

The NAB AFL Draft Combine will showcase many of the most talented boys in the country and be held in Melbourne from Friday October 7 to Sunday October 9.

It will be the first time a national Combine has been staged for boys or girls since 2019.
