Sam Powell-Pepper is a big-bodied midfielder from West Australia. Debuting in Round 1, 2017 against the Swans, he was nominated for the NAB AFL Rising Star in his first game.

BACKGROUND

Powell-Pepper was drafted to Port Adelaide from East Perth with pick No. 18 in the 2016 National Draft.

TIMELINE

2017

In his first year, Sam Powell-Pepper looked right at home. The strong-bodied midfielder played 22 games and was nominated for the Rising Star after a dominant display against the Swans in his first game of AFL footy.

2018

His second season was a tougher one for the young gun. Powell-Pepper played 16 games averaging 19 disposals and kicked five goals, but the midfielder was slapped with a club-imposed sanction and missed some footy early in the season. He also found himself in the SANFL towards the end of the season to find some form.
