West Australian Elliot Yeo proved a standout at the 2011 AFL Draft Combine, particularly in the agility, standing vertical jump and 20m sprint tests. His speed is supplemented with good skills on both sides of his body.
• Originally from Attadale JFC, Yeo quickly became a key member of the East Fremantle Colts' side in 2011, averaging more than 22 disposals per game and finishing third in the club's Best & Fairest award.
• He was selected to represent Western Australia at the NAB AFL U18 Championships and averaging 14 disposals as a medium defender throughout the Carnival.
• He was a standout at the NAB AFL Draft Combine, being the quickest in the agility run (7.80 seconds), having the best standing vertical jump with a score of 78cm and running 2.91 seconds for the 20m sprint, showcasing his athletic ability.
• Yeo entered the Draft highly rated by the Lions, and the Club took little time in snapping him up when he was still available at Pick No.30 overall.
• After arriving at the Club before Christmas, Yeo focused on building his strength and endurance in preparation for his first AFL season.
• He was impressive in the Lions’ NAB Cup pre-season campaigns and started strongly for the Lions’ Reserves in the season proper, before earning his first senior call-up against North Melbourne in Round 9.
• Yeo was sent back to the Reserves in Round 10 to hone his skills, before earning a recall in Round 16, where he went on to play seven of the last eight games of the year in an impressive debut season for the West Australian product.
