Season by Season

Season by Season

Adelaide’s second pick in the 2011 AFL Draft, Grigg split his time between the Redlegs league and reserve teams in his first year at West Lakes. A neat and long-kicking ball winner, Grigg has the capacity to play in a variety of positions.

Season by Season

Grigg was adjudged South Australia’s most valuable player after a dominant display at the Under-18 Championships last June. The youngest-ever player to make his league debut for Norwood (he was 16-years old in 2009), Grigg returned to the Redlegs league side in the latter part of the season, showcasing his booming and accurate left-foot kick. A strong endurance runner, Grigg was selected by Adelaide with the Club’s second pick (No.41 overall) in 2011 AFL Draft.
