Lions select Keeffe with Pick No. 48

AFLW Draftee: Jessie Keefe Welcome to the AFLW Lions Den Jessie Keefe

Jessy Keeffe was the Brisbane Lions eighth pick (48th overall) at the 2017 AFLW Draft.

The 21-year-old is another Yeronga Devils QWAFL premiership player and joins teammates Emily Bates, Sabrina Frederick-Traub and Kate McCarthy at the Lions. 

An athletic ruck, Keefe is developing her overhead marking and kicking skills. Keeffe represented Queensland in the State Under 23 series against Western Australia.

Keeffe’s appetite to improve and learn is second to none and she will boost the Lions’ ruck stocks.

Her brother is former Collingwood player Lachlan Keeffe.
