Player Sponsor

A lifelong Crows fan, Milera’s childhood dream came true when he was selected by Adelaide with pick No.11 in the 2015 AFL National Draft. The classy half-forward previously made his SANFL debut for Central District as a 17-year-old while he played all six games for South Australia at the Under-18 National Championships. In 2017, he earned a NAB AFL Rising Star Nomination and took out the Mark Bickley Emerging Talent Award. In 2018, he excelled in a switch to half-back, including a career- high haul of 33 disposals against Gold Coast in Round Six.
