Sam Sturt is a general forward from Frankston South outside of Melbourne. After some eye-catching performances for Peninsula Grammar School in the Associate Grammar Schools of Victoria competition, Sturt was added late in 2018 to the Dandenong Stingrays program. He played the last six games of the season and played a big role in the Stingrays’ successful finals campaign. After debuting in round 14, Sturt led the TAC Cup in score assists and tackles inside 50 and was also top five in the league for goals and score involvements in that period. The 18-year-old has impressive speed, natural forward smarts and recovers well at ground level. He is a terrific mark overhead, has a good leap and picks up the ball quickly in flight. At 189cm and with ability in the air and at ground level, Sturt is a difficult match up. He is a very talented cricketer and has never done a football pre-season due to cricket commitments, so he comes with a lot of upside.
