Adored by his fans, Jack epitomises the emotions of the AFL and wears his heart on his sleeve. Recruited from the Tassie Mariners in 2006, Jack had the luxury of playing against men in his junior days for local club, Clarence, which no doubt enabled his smooth transition into the AFL ranks.

The two time Coleman Medalist and All Australian has led the Tigers goal kicking for the last 6 consecutive seasons, a massive achievement considering the fact he regularly uses his athleticism to play up the ground to help support his team mates.

Enjoying a fine couple of seasons, Jack was pivotal in the Tigers push into September action in the last few years, before the team dipped in 2016. However after adding a few key players to the list in 2017, Jack and the Tigers achieved the ultimate when they beat Adelaide to win the Premiership. Jack was extraordinary throughout the entire season, playing selfless footy for the team, yet still kicking 54 goals.

Continuing there fine form into 2018, the Tigers were Premiership favourites heading into the finals, before having a rare off night against Collingwood in the Preliminary Final, ending there chance for back to back flags. Jack had an incredible season, winning the Club’s Best & Fairest for a second time as well as winning the Coleman Medal for a third time.

A regular on AFL 360 on Tuesday nights with Jordan Lewis, Jack has been able to show his incredible football intellect. His love for media has also opened up an opportunity with WTFN on a new lifestyle program “The Great Weekend”, which will see Jack broaden his horizons and host a regular segment which will air on Channel 7. In addition to his media, Jack has completed his Building Certificate after undertaking numerous renovations on property he has bought and sold.
