Clay Cameron to debut for SUNS

Queensland’s Clay Cameron will make his AFL debut with the Gold SUNS in their clash against Richmond at Metricon Stadium tomorrow night.

Originally taken as a zone priority selection in the 2012 AFL Draft, the Mt Gravatt product was dogged by hip problems throughout 2013.

GC SUNS General Manager – Football Operations, Marcus Ashcroft said Cameron’s selection came on the back of strong performances in the NAB Challenge.

“Clay had some injury worries last year but after off-season surgery has enjoyed a terrific pre-season.

“His endurance and testing times were in the elite category, and we have been excited by the progress he has made.

As a tall defender who can play forward, Cameron stood out with both Mt Gravatt and the GC SUNS reserves in the NEAFL in 2012.

As a teen, he was the kid that was good at every sport he tried his hand at and was considered a particularly hot prospect in track and field.

In 2004, he was ranked No.1 in his age group in discus and No.8 in high jump. In 2005 he ranked No.2 in discuss in the Pacific. And in 2007 he ranked No.7 in shot put in Australia and No.8 in discus.

AFL prevailed, and Cameron will see his dreams realised when he lines up at half back against the Tigers at 6:40 pm tomorrow.
