As a kid, growing up in Ballarat, Brad Crouch played football and cricket with younger brother Matt. A handy fast bowler on the cricket field, Crouch impressed during the Under-16 National Championships and was an Under-18 All Australian. At only 17 he was drafted by the Crows with pick No. 2 in the 2011 ‘mini draft’. Crouch played at West Adelaide before making his AFL debut in Round Two, 2013. He capped off his season as the AFL Rising Star runner-up. In 2017, Crouch had a career best year, playing 20 games and averaging 28 disposals.
Ongoing injury, primarily a groin concern which led to surgery, sidelined Crouch for the whole 2018 season before he made a memorable comeback last year to claim the Malcolm Blight Medal for the first time. He played all 22 games in a career-best campaign - averaging 30.2 disposals, five tackles, five clearances and 11 contested possessions per game. The midfielder recorded 86 inside-50s, ranked first at the Club and polled a team-high 14 Brownlow votes.
