A silky wingman taken with selection 53 in the 2012 national draft, Gleeson impressed fans during the NAB Cup with his composure around much bigger bodies. A shoulder reconstruction ended Gleeson’s prematurely after playing 13 VFL games for the season in 2013. Still lightly framed, Gleeson will need to continue to build up body mass before he becomes a regular in the senior side.  An impressive debut season bodes well for Gleeson as he looks set to grab his senior chance in 2014.
