Career Brownlow votes:

Lachlan Schultz grew up in Echuca/Moama in Northern Victoria and played his TAC Cup football at the Bendigo Pioneers. He now lives in Melbourne where he has played the past three years in the VFL for Williamstown. Schultz is a forward who has the versatility to go through the midfield.  In 2017 as a 19-year-old, Schultz kicked 31 goals from 17 games and was named Williamstown's most promising player. After overcoming an ankle injury, Schultz had a terrific back end to 2018 where his competitiveness, contested marking ability and goal sense stood out. In the second half of the 2018 season, for general forwards in the VFL, Schultz ranked second for ranking points (94.8), first for disposals (16.9), second for contested possessions (8), first for loose ball gets (4.4), first for clearances (2.8), third for marks (5) and fifth for score involvements (6). He's courageous, tough and has the ability to win his own ball.
