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.

Jeff White just posted these pics of his son who is turning 9 this year. 

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.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
