Hailing from Ardrossan, on the Yorke Peninsula, Sam Jacobs was originally selected by Carlton in the 2006 rookie draft.

Since his Adelaide debut in 2011, Jacobs has received three All Australian nominations and has averaged 30+ hit-outs a game in seven of his eight seasons. The ever-reliable ruckman has missed just six games in his time at West Lakes.
