An All-Australian and John Cahill Medallist by the age of 21, Wingard is one of the Power's exciting young turks. Following his breakout 2013 season he played solid, consistent football in attack throughout 2014 and netted Port Adelaide's first mark of the year award.

Background

  • Wingard was recruited from SA-based club Sturt having grown up at Murray Bridge – about an hour’s drive from Adelaide.

Season by Season

Season by Season

  • Wingard came to the fore in key moments throughout 2014, notably with sterling performances up forward against Adelaide in the first game at the new Adelaide Oval, but it was his five-goal performance against Fremantle in both Round 8 and inspired four goals against the Dockers in the semi final that capped his season. A quieter year, but a solid performance he can build on for 2015.
  • A John Cahill Medal, Showdown Medal, All-Australian selection and Supporters' MVP were listed along Wingard's name at the end of the 2013 season.
  • He won games - particularly Showdown XXXV - off his own boot and blitzed his teammates in the best and fairest count after Round 8.
  • Recognised with All-Australian selection as a result of his breakout year, Wingard became a household name and elevated himself to star status at Port Adelaide.
  • Wingard debuted as a substitute in the opening round of 2012 and excited the crowd with his fast running, agile gameplay. 
  • Recovering from a shoulder injury which kept him out of action for two weeks, Wingard played 19 out of the Power’s 22 games for the year.
  • His explosive and influential 27-disposal performance in the midfield against Brisbane in round 22 saw him win a NAB AFL Rising Star nomination.
  • He was awarded the Gavin Wanganeen Medal for the club’s best player under 21 years at the Power’s annual best and fairest awards night.
