Lions Academy product Toby Triffett did his best to impress in the 2021 NAB AFL Draft Combine, recording personal bests across the board in Saturday’s testing.
Triffett was one of 5 Queensland players participating in the National Draft Combine, with fellow Lions’ Academy members, Jack Briskey, Tahj Abberley, and Charlie Bowes also taking part in the State combine.
19-year-old Triffett topped the National Combine pool in both the agility and 2km tests, while Briskey led the Queenslanders in the vertical jump and the running vertical jump in the State Combine.
Tahj Abberly also finished second in the agility test and equalled his PB in the vertical jump.
Their strong performances come off the back of a dedicated training block with Lions Academy Strength and Conditioning Coach Joe Penfold leading up to the Combine.
Unfortunately, Lions Academy product Saxon Crozier missed the State Combine due to illness.
This is the second year in a row that the 2021 NAB AFL Draft Combine has been held as a State-based event due to the impacts of COVID-19.
The 2021 NAB AFL Draft Combine assesses the strength and skills of each player through several tests including 20-metre sprint, agility tests and vertical jump ahead of the 2021 NAB AFL Draft.
The 2021 NAB AFL Draft is scheduled to be held on Wednesday November 24.
