Introduction

Selected by the Brisbane Lions at Pick No. 1 in the 2017 AFL Draft, Cam Rayner is an exciting, powerful midfielder. Rayner has the ability to open up games with his pace, strength and agility at stoppages. He earnt the nickname “Hollywood” at Hillside junior football club for his goalkicking flair. Only months after being drafted to the Lions, Rayner made the decision to extend his contract for a further two seasons at the club.

Background

• Recruited from Western Jets. Before that, Rayner played his junior football at Hillside where he won six best and fairest awards.

• In 2017, Rayner shone at the NAB AFL U18 Championships for Vic Metro, averaging 18.5 disposals and three goals a game. He was rewarded by being named in the under 18 All-Australian team.

• Rayner was earmarked for as a prospective No. 1 Draft pick since April 2017 where the youngster starred in the NAB AFL Academy's 20th-anniversary match. Rayner kicked three goals and collected 23 disposals, all while carrying a serious foot injury.

Before even playing his first game, Rayner re-signed his contract for a further 2 years with the Brisbane Lions. The young talent and club culture were big factors in what influenced Rayner's decision to stay until at least 2021.
