Introduction

Jack Crisp is a genuine utility who can play roles up forward, down back and in the middle. He is a left footer who - at 190cm - can take a good mark and win clearances. His defensive run and chase-down tackles (averaging 3.5 per game) is another feature of his game, along with his overhead ball-handling skills and long kicking.

Background

Hailing from Myrtleford in Victoria’s north, Jack Crisp is a versatile utility who has been known to play roles as a tall midfielder and across half-back / half-forward.

• He averaged 18.8 disposals (including 11 contested possessions), four marks and more than seven tackles per game in the 2011 TAC Cup competition and went on to win the Murray Bushrangers’ Best & Fairest award.

• His performances also earned him selection in the 2011 TAC Cup Team of the Year.

• He was selected in the Victoria Country team for the National Championships where he was noted for his hard-tackling and one per centers. In fact, he averaged 15 pressure acts per match throughout the carnival.

• After catching the eye of AFL recruiters, he was invited to take part in the 2011 AFL Draft Combine where he finished top 10 in two events - standing vertical jump and kicking assessment (in which he scored 83 per cent). He also set a personal best in the 3km time-trial.

• He was disappointed after being overlooked at the 2011 AFL National Draft, but was invited to join St Kilda’s pre-season training squad in a bid to get a second chance via the Rookie Draft.

• But the Lions pounced first, claiming Crisp with their third round selection (Pick No.40 overall) in the Rookie Draft.

Season by Season

Season by Season

Crisp impressed the coaching staff with his speed and tackling pressure during the pre-season, and earned a regular spot in the Lions’ line-up throughout the NAB Cup.

• As a rookie-listed player, he was unable to represent the senior team in Round 1 of the season proper, but a strong of outstanding performances with the Reserves side saw him promptly elevated to the senior list in place of injured ruckman Matthew Leuenberger. 

• Almost immediately after being elevated, Crisp was selected to make his senior AFL debut against Gold Coast in QClash 3. He collected 17 disposals and booted three behinds in a memorable first outing.

• Crisp played a further two senior matches, before being sent back to the NEAFL to continue his rapid development.  

• He proved an asset with the Reserves side in the following two months, before his athleticism was called upon again by the senior team in seven of their final nine matches of the season.  

• Once the Lions’ 2012 season had officially wrapped up, Crisp continued playing to the Reserves side and helped them claim the 2012 NEAFL Premiership against NT Thunder. 

• His first AFL season reaped 10 senior matches and a State League Premiership – quite the return for the young country Victorian who wasn’t drafted until Pick No.40 in the Rookie Draft.
