Player bio

At a glance

Junior clubs: Rudall
Clubs: Port Adelaide (2014 Rookie Draft, pick 29)
Debut: Rd 4, 2014
Recruited from: Port Adelaide (SANFL)
Sponsor: SA Plumbing Solutions, Carmine Belperio

Joined the Power list from the club's SANFL team via the rookie draft, after years of being one of the Magpies' best players. Gray is a natural footballer, sneaky around goal and knows how to find the ball and what to do with it.

TIMELINE

2014

Gray was drafted from the club’s SANFL operations and debuted in Round 4 against Brisbane with an exciting three-goal performance.

Playing a total of seven matches for the year, Gray mixed AFL and SANFL duties throughout the year as a versatile small midfielder and forward. Fitness will be a continual focus for the rookie as he aims to back up 2014 with a second successful campaign.

2015

With several first-choice players out through injury, Gray played the final six games of the year, averaging almost 33 disposals in the last four. 

2016

Played 17 games as a midfielder or small-forward averaging 21 disposals a game. Seemingly confirmed his place in the team through his footy smarts and ball-winning ability.

2017

Playing every game in 2017, Sam Gray kicked 28 goals – the third-highest for the Power. Gray also averaged 18 touches a game and has proved to be essential in Port’s make-up.

2018

Much like Port's scoring in 2018, Sam Gray's was slightly down on the year before. In 19 games, the small forward managed 21 goals while collecting an average of 15 touches a game.
