AFL Draft: Who Is Finn Callaghan? Wikipedia

Finn Callaghan is considered as one of the top picks for AFL draft 2021, in father-son prospects rule.

Callaghan is one of four prospects the Giants have been exploring with their first-round pick, the others being Dandenong Stingrays tall Mac Andrew, GWV Rebels defender Josh Gibcus, and Murray Bushrangers small forward Josh Rachele.

He plays as a Midfielder, who is certain to be selected by the Giants in the 2021 draft.

In addition, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Hawthorn, Fremantle, and Richmond have all expressed interest in Callaghan. The majority of them were interested in trading up to the Giants’ selection to secure the Bont-like left-footer.

The Giants, on the other hand, have turned down every offer.

Unlike his current surge in popularity, Finn’s path to the draft was not always smooth. Two years ago, the midfielder encountered a significant setback when he was overlooked at the Vic Metro selection table as an under-16.

However, he saw the exclusions as a spark, and he was enthused and worked extremely hard the following off-season to improve and become better in all areas.

And we can say that he made that happen, observing his recent demand in the draft committee.

What Is Finn Callaghan Age And Height?

Finn Callaghan has a remarkable body measurement with a height of 6 feet 2 inches, weighing 90 kilograms as of 2021.

However, as an 18 years old athlete, Finn has “little, squeaky-voiced as a kid” according to Sandringham Dragons coach Jackson Kornberg.

His body along with his great kicking skills and great poise in tight and in space makes him a perfect modern-day midfielder.

Callaghan’s manager, Tom Seccull describes him as the most humble and admirable player despite his massive height, size, and football prowess.

The player averaged 18.7 disposals in his first three NAB League games, mostly as a midfield defender. But in reality, he recognized himself as a midfielder in his last three games, averaging 30.0 disposals, 4.7 clearances, and 5.3 score involvements.

In this year’s draft class, he joins the ‘fab four’ of Daicos, Horne-Francis, and Darcy.
