Versatile Bomber who repaid the faith of the club in 2018 after being given the responsibility of carrying former captain Jobe Watson’s No.4 guernsey.

Langford took his game to a new level, showing plenty of grunt and skill throughout the club’s resurgence that started with its dominant victory over Geelong in round nine.

The 22-year-old proved to be a handful for the opposition in the back half of the year where he displayed great courage and ferocity on the ball, while showing valuable goal sense in the forward line, booting five goals in the last three rounds.

Expect to see even more of Langford in the guts in 2019 where his size and enthusiasm will prove extremely important.
