At A Glance

Junior Clubs: Zillmere Eagles
Debut: Round 16, 2016
Recruited from: Lions Academy
Brownlow Votes: -

An attacking half-back, William is a product of the Club’s successful Hyundai Help for Kids Lions Academy and played for the club's reserves in the NEAFL in 2015.

The medium-sized defender was also integral to Queensland's effort to win the second division title in the 2015 NAB AFL U18 Championships. 

William averaged 17 disposals (seven contested) in three games and was named in Queensland's best players each time, including second-best in the final against NSW/ACT. 

He was perhaps unlucky not to make the All Australian team. 

William also represented Queensland in five TAC Cup games, averaging 18.6 possessions, with a best effort of 28 disposals against top team North Ballarat at Eureka Stadium.

He's quick, evasive, has good ball skills, takes the game on, is hard at it and a strong tackler. 

Season by Season

Season by Season

• William made his debut against Gold Coast in round 16, and wasn’t overawed by the AFL experience as he finished with 13 disposals, three tackles and two defensive rebounds across half-back.

• The young defender displayed great pace and attack on the ball in his three senior games and will look to build his aerobic capacity and disposal efficiency as he looks toward the pre-season and more senior games in 2017.
