A highly-rated local talent, Wingard enjoyed a breakout season in 2013 where he took out a swathe of accolades. Finishing the season as the club's best and fairest, an All-Australian and a household name in Australian Football, he proved a match-winner on multiple occasions as a small forward. 

Capable of playing through the midfield, Wingard's next challenge is to spend more time in the centre of the ground.

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

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.
