Introduction

Harris Andrews is a tall defender/ruckman known as a good user of the ball who can also push forward and provide a target, given his genuine presence in the contest. Was nominated by Brisbane with pick 63 after being part of the club's academy. Can play a variety of roles and has good endurance to go with his strong overhead marking ability.

Background

• Harris Andrews is a tall Ruckman/Forward with good endurance, allowing him to work all over the ground.

• Along with athleticism, his strengths are his competitiveness, set shots on goal and ability to read the play.

• He has shown considerable improvement in his game during his time in the Brisbane Lions Academy program.

• Harris was nominated by Brisbane as an Academy Selection during the 2014 Academy and Father-Son Bidding at the start of Trade Period resulting in the Club selecting him with their second selection in the AFL National Draft, pick 61 overall. 

Season by Season

Season by Season

• In just his second year, the 19-year-old was often required to take on the top forwards in the competition.

• The big man averaged 10.3 disposals, 5.8 kicks and 4.5 handballs a game, he was also named in the 22Under22 squad of 2016.

• Coaches say his leadership went to another level this year and hopefully he can make a step forward in that area again in 2017.

Season By Season

• Eighteen months ago, the tall teenager was barely on the national radar; but now, with 17 games under his belt, the 18-year-old defender looks set to develop into one of the games’ best young defenders.

• Andrews’ excellent first year form culminated in a Rising Star nomination in Round 18 for his defensive work against the more mature Geelong side.

• Signing a contract extension until the end of 2018, from almost nowhere, the Brisbane-raised product has given the club a key position player for the next decade.
