Gray has turned himself into a lethal midfielder who has an uncanny ability to emerge from stoppages with possession. Gray’s creativity is elite and helps him to punish opposition sides when around goal. He is one of the game's modern superstars.

TIMELINE

2007

Taken at pick 55 in the 2006 draft, few expected Gray to debut in his first season. But the elusive forward burst onto the scene in Round 10, debuting alongside Justin Westhoff. He kicked 4 goals in just his third game, against Essendon at Footy Park. Gray played five games for the season.

2008

Gray was in and out of the AFL side, but was only held goalless in one of his 10 games for the season.

2009

A breakout season for Gray, playing 20 games and kicking 30 goals, including a best-on-ground 4-goal effort against Hawthorn in Round 18. Towards the end of the season, Gray began showing his skills in the midfield - a sign of things to come.

2010

A season cruelled by soft-tissue injuries, Gray showed moments of brilliance, including a 5-goal, 20-disposal game against the Crows in Round 6 where he won the Showdown Medal. He managed just 11 games, with 8 of them wins. Given the Power only won 10 for the season, it showed Gray's importance to the side.

2011

Gray was one of the Power's shining lights in a disappointing season. He played every game and led the Power's goal-kicking with 32 goals, including 6 against Essendon in Round 23.

2012

After missing the first two games of the season through injury, tragedy struck for Gray in his second game for 2012, rupturing his ACL against Collingwood in Round 4 at Etihad Stadium. The injury ruled him out for the year.

2013

Gray made his return from injury 364 days later, a win against Gold Coast. His form was solid in 2013 as he returned to full match fitness. Gray had a then career-high 28 disposals and was one of the Power's best in a Round 22 loss to Fremantle.

2014

If it's possible to have a second breakout season, Gray well and truly did it in 2014. He announced himself as one of the premier players in the competition, kicking 42 goals and racking up more than 600 disposals. He was an integral cog in a Power side that made it to the 2014 Preliminary Final, mixing his time between the midfield and forward line. He was named the AFL Coaches Association Player of the Year, won the Power's Best & Fairest and earned All-Australian honours.

2015

Gray continued his brilliance in 2015. He spent more time in the midfield than in 2014, but still managed to boot 25 goals. His clearance work was elite, averaging 8 per game on his way to a second John Cahill Medal and another All-Australian nod.

2016

Clinched a third John Cahill Medal after another supreme season despite missing games through injury. A shining light for the Power despite the side's disappointing season, he is poised to finish his career (which will hopefully be a fair way off yet) as one of Port Adelaide's greatest AFL stars.

2017

Spending the majority of his time in the forward-half in 2017, Gray was a key to Port’s high-scoring season. The three-time John Cahill Medallist kicked 47 goals and had 30 goal assists, while also collecting 19 disposals a game. A season that earnt him a third All-Australian birth.

2018

Gray won a fourth All-Australian selection in 2018. The mercurial midfield/forward kicked 36 goals, while averaging 21 touches a game. He won both Showdown medals this season, kicking six and four goals in Round 8 and Round 20 respectively.
