Claremont Football Club's Jordan Clark was Western Australia's first selection in the 2018 NAB AFL National Draft at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne tonight, Thursday, November 22.
Clark was selected by Geelong at number 15 after starring for the Simply Energy WA State 18s at the NAB AFL National 18s Championships, where he won WA's MVP Award and was named as an All-Australian.
WAFC Executive Manager Talent and Football Operations Scott Baker congratulated Clark and said his performance for Western Australia and at Claremont had paved the way for his first-round selection.
"Jordan had a great National 18s Championship and then demonstrated his ability to step up to senior level with Claremont Football Club, playing in their last five games of the season, including two finals," he said.
"He is to be congratulated on his commitment, regularly travelling to Perth from Albany, and richly deserves the opportunity to showcase his talent at an AFL club.
"We wish Jordan all the best as he strives to make his AFL debut and also congratulate Claremont Football Club, as well Guildford Grammar, Railways Albany and our State Academy coaches and staff for the role they have played in his development."
The 2018 NAB AFL National Draft continues from 9am WST time tomorrow, Friday, November 23.
