Meet our Round Eleven Men’s Rising Star Nominee, Jordan Taylor, St George Dragons

Player Profile:

Name:  Jordan Taylor

Nickname: JT

AFL Sydney Club: St George Dragons

Junior Club: Bangor Tigers

Position: Backline

What is one thing that we don’t know about this Rising Star that they are well known for around the club?

Running. JT (and his brother) spend most of the off-season competing in long distance running events. Including ultra-marathons.

What role do you play for the club(s) both on and off the field? 

JT is one of a large group of quality U19s at St George that are pushing for a permanent spot in the Prems squad, and building a long-term and successful future for the club.

Reason for nomination this round:

Jordan was one of our best players in a back line that was under siege for large parts of the game.

Coach quote on Performance:

“JT has put together a run of Senior team performances that is making it very hard to return him to the U19s team. He makes excellent decisions under pressure, rarely makes skill errors and is fitting into a defence as one of a group of intercept defenders that create drive and momentum from the back-line.” – St George Dragons Men’s Premier Division Coach – Abraham Caroca
