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. https://youtu.be/48RR72CzVh8 Here is Jackson Callow taking a massive mark at full speed while at Norwood. https://youtu.be/__RNFgjfcy8 Here are highlights of him playing in the Under 18s competition for Tasmania and NAB All Stars back in 2020. https://youtu.be/fM2kOFJywvg Anyway, I hope MFC Recruiting Boss Jason Taylor has a look at possibly picking up Jackson Callow as a delisted free agent.
http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-10-06/freo-talls-clarke-and-griffin-among-five-dockers-delisted With the departure of Spencer and still relatively raw experience/development of Mitch King & Filipovic, what would be to happen if Max does his knee and then Pedo does a hamstring the following week? I think picking up one of these two for peanuts as a DFA is imperative on a 2 year deal just to allow King & Filipovic the time they need. Clarke's the younger of the two, 28 at the start of next year and has been used forward on occasion for Freo, reasonably agile also. Missed all of 2017 with a knee issue however and maybe doesn't fit the competative mould we're after. http://www.fremantlefc.com.au/player-profile/zachary-clarke http://www.aflplayerratings.com.au/Ratings/Player/114741/Zac-CLARKE Griffin will be 32 at the start of next year and probably isn't quite as agile as Clarke or played forward as much. However he is a much more competative ruckman and has played senior football to good level this this in the AFL. http://www.fremantlefc.com.au/player-profile/jonathon-griffin http://www.aflplayerratings.com.au/Ratings/Player/110457/Jonathon-GRIFFIN Whichever way the club goes, if they were to go down this path. I think it's important the player was aware they were coming in as support only and that if we were having a good injury run they were be forced to play permanent forward or off the bench at Casey to ensure King & Filipovic were getting the required minutes in the ruck. I know Griffin is a WA local as opposed to Clarke (Oakleigh Chargers), so it may be more difficult to entice him across as opposed to Clarke. However due to his competitiveness and the fact he's played decent AFL football this year, my pick would be to entice Griffin across for 2 years.
