Player Bio

Background

Clarke won All Australian honours after averaging 24 disposals a game during the national championships, with more than half those touches won in contested situations. That's what he does so well: he can get his hands on the ball over and over when others want it, and he is very strong over a contest. 

Clarke's hands are quick and precise, and he led the championships for clearances, averaging six a game in Metro's division one winning team. Clarke is what you see - a hard-running, endurance beast who finished third in the 3km time trial at the NAB AFL Draft Combine and just racks up the numbers every week.

Essendon List and Recruiting Manager Adrian Dodoro says:

“He really impressed up with his want and his desire to be an AFL player.  He can run all day and he’ll work really hard.  There are some deficiencies with his kicking some may say, but we’re going to back our development coaches who have said already they can get him to a level good enough to play league footy.  He won’t leave any stone unturned.”
