Jackson Callow was delisted by the Hawks a few weeks ago.

He will be a delisted free agent who I think the Demons should at least consider recruiting.

Was originally a Tasmanian who was overlooked in the draft and then played for Norwood in the SANFL.

He is a tall forward who is about 195-196cms in height and still only 20 years of age.

Was apparently a Melbourne Demons supporter as a kid growing up in Tasmania.

I don't know what his deficiencies are seeing as the Hawks did delist him.

However, I think he is worth another chance on an AFL list and we are desperate for young tall forwards to develop.

We should definitely look to recruit him and let him play in the forward line for the Casey Demons. That way we can watch him closely and see if he can make it on an AFL list ourselves.

Here is his highlights reel at Norwood playing for the Redlegs in the SANFL.

Here is Jackson Callow taking a massive mark at full speed while at Norwood.

Here are highlights of him playing in the Under 18s competition for Tasmania and NAB All Stars back in 2020.

Anyway, I hope MFC Recruiting Boss Jason Taylor has a look at possibly picking up Jackson Callow as a delisted free agent.

Not at afl level athlete 

So DS he is carrying a pound or two ie fitness and athleticism a problem? 

Looks worth a chance to rookie as he can be placed on a specific fitness program once our experts ( not DS) have had a look and done some research. 

Does appear to do what Sam does not ie mark and kick goals !!!

You can’t just make a guy run faster and jump higher. If we could do that we’d start with half our own players

What? 

Edit: I assume you mean that his base level is so low that he will never make the level. Because your post is incorrect.

Jackson sustained a pretty serious ankle injury in his last game for Box Hill. He had surgery and is looking at 4 months of re-hab. In his position, this is a pretty significant hurdle for him.

Hmmm....I did not know about this. Quite disappointing to hear that Jackson Callow has injured his ankle.

Nevertheless, I think that the Demons could at least offer him a rookie spot. He has shown he has the talent and I think he would provide a better option than Mitch Brown in the future.

Of course you can get moderate improvements but you can’t turn Luke Dunstan in to Clayton Oliver, nor can you turn Weideman in to Harry McKay or any other functional key forward.

Callow’s a smart footballer but pretty much  all his highlights are running in straight lines and barely jumping off the ground. Even his nice pack marks at sanfl or junior level aren’t cutting it at afl level.
 

Talls need to move like midfielders at ground level and compete with athletic freaks (some of them 2m+ tall) in the air.

I know nothing of Callow, but just saying that chubby young Clayton Oliver has been turned into elite Clayton Oliver.

I still think Jackson Callow is worth a 2nd chance.

I understand he is injured but we could always add him to our rookie list?

Would definitely be a handy replacement for Mitch Brown and we could see how he develops as a forward playing for the Casey Demons in the VFL.

Here is another highlights video when he was playing for North Launceston in his local Tasmanian football league back in 2019:

Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.
