Junior Club: Macleod/Ivanhoe Grammar
Recruited from: Northern Knights
Debut: 2015

Kyle Langford is an athletic half-forward with the ability to play in the midfield. He is also strong in the air. 

After eight games in his first season in 2015, Langford added 17 more to his career tally in 2016. Along the way he sampled just about every area of the ground.  

The second year player spent most of his time in the midfield and across half forward but there was also a brief sojourn into defence.

Langford booted 12 goals for the season (4th overall at Essendon) including three in the Bombers win over Carlton in round 23. 

The former Northern Knight’s ability to present and mark across half forward proved invaluable with Langford averaging five marks and three inside 50’s per game.
