Adelaide midfielder Harry Schoenberg is ready to establish himself as an AFL name in 2021.
On Thursday, Schoenberg signed a two-year extension with the Club following an impressive debut season - eight games and three goals.
With former Giant Jackson Hately returning to Adelaide via the pre-season draft, Schoenberg knows there will be healthy competition for selection.
“I’m very competitive, that’s one thing I’ve taken from my junior footy,” Schoenberg said.
“I think there’s some competition with me and Hately… he’s a really good player.
“We both will probably share that position. Coming in and out, can go half-forward as well, play on the outside.
“We’ll both swing in there at times.”
During the offseason break, Schoenberg stayed in Adelaide to train with his teammates, despite the squad being on annual leave.
The 19-year-old has already started to see the benefits, both personally and for the team.
“I’ve put on some size but also managed to slim down a bit to get my running up to date,” Schoenberg said.
“I also feel like I’ve got to know a lot more of the boys… we’ve been really close, training hard together.
“That started in the offseason, heaps of the boys stayed around Adelaide to train together.
“It’s a great feeling around the Club.”
