Pick 55 - Sam Collins  November 24, 2015 8:30 PM

Sam Collins possesses fantastic aerobic ability for his size.

Pick 56 - Sam Collins

Club: Box Hill Hawks
Position: Key defender
Date of birth: 15 June 1994
Height: 194cm
Weight: 92kg

We pulled up in the driveway and my name was read out: Collins

From the Freo recruiters
Sam had a breakout year in 2014 at VFL level. At just 19 and in just  his second year in the VFL, he was named in Box Hill’s leadership group and was voted the club’s most professional player. In 2015, Sam took another step forward in his development and finished fifth in Box Hill’s best and fairest and won the A.P Dickenson Memorial Trophy for best clubman. Sam demonstrated the ability to play a variety of roles, but played his best footy as a key defender. Sam is a ferocious competitor and rarely loses a contest. Sam's intercept marking ability is a real highlight of his game. Sam also possesses fantastic aerobic ability for his size.
What says
Became a regular holding down a key defensive post for the losing Grand Finalists and his efforts won't have gone unnoticed by AFL scouts. Collins boasts excellent closing speed and gives his heart and soul in every contest. The fact that the Oakleigh Chargers product is only 21 and part of Box Hill's leadership group speaks volumes about his character.
