Dare to dream Demon fans, by all accounts he is a ripping young fella. Will be taller that his dad, let's hope he has inherited  Jeff's incredible leap, athleticism and beautiful kicking action. He certainly looked good on his under age video highlights. A mouth watering father/son prospect for the mighty Dees under the tutelage of Captain Max and our merry band of coaches. 

Don't worry about that. I read somewhere on  here he is breaking schoolboy high jump records.

Only risk is the lure of basketball. Pays better and has the potential of representing country. 

Also a much much harder sport to succeed in at the highest level. 

It's a risky move to pick basketball over AFL in Australia unless you are an absolute A+ talent with a future in the NBA.

I can't understand the pay grade in the NBA.

Patty Mills has shot the lights out in now what is an increasingly 3 point pame.

Ben Simmonds can't even make a free throw and isn't what I would call a culture maker.

I reckon Jason Taylor could go over and recruit with the same principals.

Interesting to note Ben Simmons' draft profile in 2016:

1. Simmons' lack of competitiveness in some crucial games has raised questions about his character as a basketball player. - Source: http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Ben-Simmons-61928/ ©DraftExpress

if his high school high jump records are true, i think the aoc is a bigger threat - by the time the 2032 olympics roll around in his home town of the gold coast he'll be cherry ripe to claim a medal

The Olympics will take place out of season. He can do the high jump, play NBL for the Brisbane Bullets and ruck for the Dees in the same calendar year.

Yet in that last footage Jeff shared he was really nowhere near dunking the ball in an open lane ?  (Jeff mentioned the nearness, which makes it seem not so common). 6.5 - can't dunk - something is wrong with this picture.

Pretty selfish lad to be honest, some people aren't good at 1 sport and he's good at 3. 

Nearly ever kid that gets drafted are good at any sport they play and usually need to make a call between sports around 15 years old.

Kids heights are off the charts, I was at a U15 netball event a couple of weeks back, Association level, I'm 180cms and the girls in the shooter, keeper roles all stood over me most would have been around 185-190cms at 14/15 years old.

Be interesting to see how this guy develops playing in QLD the junior leagues are a lot weaker than Vic/SA/WA comps.

Feeling I get as well.

Some parents like to go about it in a quiet way and enjoy the journey with their kids, and some like Jeff love to let the whole world know about it and live through their kids own glory.

I know a few parents like this also.

Nothing wrong with parents who support their children at their sport and give them the proper encouragement. It’s those who take the next step beyond that and become controlling who are the major problem. Remember Jelena Dokic's father Damir Dokic. He was a nightmare and probably destroyed her career.

Looks like Melbourne is going under the radar with our U14-16's Academy - no other club will find our talent because they now spell Academy as Acadmey - brilliant ploy by the dees :-)

To be fair to the footy club this post was from Jeff White's account.

What do you guys think

Another F/S on the way?

Turns 17 in 2024 could be a F/S gun by then fingers crossed.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
