Seb Williams

Recommended Posts

Outstanding young man. Should be definitely drafted by the Dees with 2nd round choice circa pick 30-33.  Huge potential and loves the red & blue.  Fits our competitive requirements.

Good write up.

Another Brighton Grammarian - could he join Hunt Salem Watts at MFC.

Robert Shaw seems to be a great developer of young talent

Absolutely loved 'Dasher' Don.  The sentimental old fool in me wants Seb on our list, even though I know no more about him than what's written in the article.

Brighton Grammar may as well be the mfc academy!

Athletic type. Saw him play for the Dragons. Impressed with his run and carry. Didn't know about the connection. 

Hayden McLean also a good tall forward  from the Dragons and is another youngster that MFC should look closely at.

Always had a soft spot for Don Williams, especially given he came and was Captain-Coach of the local Sale side in 1963, prior to his return to the MFC to be part of the 1964 Premiership team.

Would be nice if young Seb made it on to the MFC list and was able to emulate some of his Grand-father's footy prowess!

If he's any good, and it appears he is, he may well Land with a team that finishes further down the ladder. Pity there's no grandfather/grandson rule!.

Good old BGS, great facilities and all for just $30K a year.

This kid bleeds Blue and Red, is exactly what the Dees need as a high half forward, endurance and speed to burn, 2.93 PB for 20m, was top 10 for 4 out of the physical tests at combine. Will take a year to fully mature at AFL level but the reward will be grand, plenty of Hampton Rovers in this lad and with Angus Brayshaw and Christian Salem looking after him the sky is the limit with deep roots via his Grandfather. if Dees don't take I feel he will go between 35-50

I would take a really committed kid,  who has 80-90% of the talent of a less committed kid, every time.

Pick 47.  Dees should seriously grab him. Courage.   skills.   Loves red & blue.   Good pace.  At this pick, it’s the “potential” and Seb has the makeup of an afl player

Deeprived Childhood, Not sure if you have heard Robert Shaw address his players but there is no Toff Tot football the way they go about it, guys like Josh Kelly, Hunt, Salam, Clayton are all products on New street, Brighton, but all fell in love with the game at their local clubs and all great players well before secondary school started. Seb Williams is no different, like the guys mentioned, he is no risk, just needs a home & the rest will fall into place, easy decision for MFC.

I'll go out on a limb, and guess no on this one.

Below is an excellent post by Whispering Jack about Williams in another thread

I haven't seen as much of him in action as I would have liked but I did see a bit of him from time to time at Dragons training during the season (which is next door to where my grandsons' junior team trains). 

Williams has been described as "a nice little player" which in terms of draftability is not necessarily a great recommendation. You have to really have some special talents to come into contention high up in the draft if you're 177cm. In Seb's case, he's got a few things going for him but if push comes to shove, I think most clubs would prefer players a bit taller with the same capabilities as on-ballers and there are a lot around in that category. It would be a romantic tale if he was drafted by the club but I think it would only be as a rookie.

PC I take it you have some link to young Seb?

The picture of Seb's build is similar to Jack Viney before he was drafted via the father and son, I read the article and I believe he is 182cm at the combine so he has the size and the pedigree to make a good footballer.  The only question is he able to go from school/U18 football to AFL. I would draft him if the choice came down to 2 players (he and another).

Yes, I know him and the family via being on the committee @ Hampton Rovers, great people, wonderful young guy, he was the skipper at BGS this year and was BOG in many games including kicking 4 goals in the APS V AGS game in August & judged BOG with and against many lads touted top 10 in this year's draft. Had 40+ disposals against Geelong College also with plenty of draft prospects.
