Connor Rozee burst onto the scene at Port Adelaide, catching the eye with his electrifying pace, silky skills and confidence to mix it at AFL level from day one at Alberton.
After a scintillating debut season playing predominantly forward of centre, which saw him gathering accolades left and right, Rozee was earmarked for more midfield minutes in 2020. A move which showed early promise.
The North Adelaide premiership player was a dynamic force through the middle of the ground in Port’s Round 1 victory over Gold Coast, while many argued his performance in the Prison Bars should have been rewarded with his first Showdown Medal.
A lingering heel injury limited his time in the midfield through the backend of the season, but there is plenty to love about Port’s number 20. His final impression of the season was booting two critical goals in a Preliminary Final. No doubt there are more memorable moments to come.
