Read about the most notable players from the first half of season 2017.
 
 
 
 
BRAYDEN AINSWORTH/MIDFIELD The Ports Junior has had a brilliant start to his Subiaco career thus far, which has culminated in him winning selection in this year’s State 18s Academy. Ainsworth played the first two rounds with the Reserves team before slotting into the Colts line-up where he has shone admirably. In six games he has kicked five goals and is currently averaging 27 possessions, six marks, four tackles and three inside 50s. His best game came against Claremont in round six when he was named best afield with 32 possessions, six inside 50s, four marks, three tackles and a goal. He is currently third in the WAFL Colts Coaches Award with 14 votes.
 
 
LIAM CONNOLLY/KEY DEFENDER The Colts Captain has led Subiaco sensationally in the first half of the season. In nine games he is averaging 14 possessions and six marks and has more often than not beaten his direct opponent in the contest. He has taken the second most marks in the competition (52) behind only West Perth’s highly rated prospect Oscar Allen (54). Connolly’s best game came in round one against South Fremantle when he gathered 20 possessions and took nine marks. He plays in a similar way to West Coast’s rising star Tom Barrass due to his reading of the play, and his strong marking ability.
 
 
MAX DENNIS/MIDFIELD Dennis is simply the heart and soul of the Subiaco Colts. The way he throws his body into contests to try and get his team forward simply inspires his teammates. In nine games he has recorded 201 possessions (the fourth most in the competition and the most by a Subiaco player) at an average of 22 per game. He is also in the top 10 of the competition for marks (41) and is in the top 20 for tackles (33). His best game came against South Fremantle in round 9 when he recorded 20 possessions, eight marks, five inside 50s, three clearances and three tackles.
 
 
TOM EDWARDS-BALDWIN/MIDFIELD A young man who has no regard for his own safety when he is on the footy field, Edwards-Baldwin is one of the toughest players in the Colts competition this year. In eight games he has recorded 132 possessions (seventh most for Subiaco) at an average of 17 per game, and 34 tackles (second most for Subiaco) at an average of four per game. What makes Edwards-Baldwin such a gun player is the way he plays for the team, especially with his inside work (clearances, tackles, blocks etc.) and his understanding of the structures.
 
 
LUKE FOLEY/MIDFIELD The Sorrento-Duncraig junior has been a revelation for Subiaco in the midfield this season so far. In eight games he has recorded 133 possessions (sixth most for the Lions) at an average of 17 per game, 46 marks (second most for Subiaco) at an average of six per game and 29 tackles (fourth most for Subiaco) at an average of four per game. His best game came against West Perth in round three when he gathered 16 possessions, took five marks, recorded four inside 50s, and laid three tackles in a performance that almost inspired the Lions to victory.
 
 
KOBY FULLGRABE/HALF-BACK/WING In the first half of the season Fullgrabe has proven to be an x-factor off the halfback line for the Colts with his run and carry as well as his penetrating kick damaging to opposition sides. In nine games he has gathered 128 possessions (ninth most for Subiaco), at an average of 14 per game, and he has had dominant outings against Swan Districts in round eight (20 possessions, six marks and five inside 50s) and against East Fremantle in round 10 (24 possessions, four rebounding 50s, four marks and three inside 50s).
 
 
KYRON HAYDEN/MIDFIELD A raging bull, Hayden has simply been phenomenal in the midfield for the Colts and as such has been named in this year’s State 18s Academy. He is currently leading the WAFL Colts Coaches Award with 24 votes from just eight games. He has been named best afield against South Fremantle in round 1 (22 possessions, seven inside 50s, five marks, two tackles and a goal), Peel in round 4 (23 possessions, five inside 50s and three marks) and Swan Districts in round 8 (17 possessions, three inside 50s and two marks). In eight games he has recorded 188 possessions (ranked #7 in the Colts Competition) at an average of 24 per game. He is a star in the stoppages, mainly due to his strong-bodied physique but also for the fact that he has the appetite for the contest. He is also composed and makes excellent decisions when he has the ball, not unlike Port Adelaide superstar Ollie Wines and Gold Coast’s 2014 Best and Fairest Winner David Swallow.
 
 
LIAM HICKMOTT/GENERAL DEFENDER In season 2017, Liam Hickmott has proven to be a revelation down back for the Subiaco Colts. At Subiaco he is ranked eighth for possessions (131 at an average of 15 per game), and is first for tackles (36 - fifth in the competition). But it is his leadership down back that inspires his teammates to play better. He often directs other players where they should place themselves at strategic moments of the game, and the way he puts his body on the line is sensational.
 
 
WILL HICKMOTT/WING He is only 17 years of age, but Wil Hickmott is looking every bit an accomplished footballer. Whenever he gets the ball, he appears to be playing at a different tempo to all the other players and his calmness with the ball sees him more often than not make the correct decision. In nine games he has accumulated 147 possessions (ranked fourth for Subiaco) at an average of 16 per game. His best game came against East Fremantle in round 10 when he gathered 27 possessions, recorded six inside 50s, laid four tackles and won three clearances. He looks a leading West Australian prospect for the 2018 AFL Draft.
 
 
CHRISTIAN MARTIN/KEY FORWARD Standing at 194 centimetres and weighing 79 kilograms, Martin has proven to be a strong key forward for the Colts this season. He is the equal leading goal kicker of the competition with 14 goals along with Peel Thunder’s Damon Cramer. His best game came against Perth in round two when he kicked four goals from 11 possessions and four marks. He also kicked three goals from 10 possessions and four marks against East Perth in round 5. For Subiaco he is ranked fourth for hit-outs (18), fifth for marks (36), and eleventh for disposals (97). He looks to be a promising key position player for the Lions in the future.
 
 
BEN MILLER/RUCK The younger brother of senior squad member Jacob, Ben has followed in his brother’s footsteps by being named in this year’s State 18s Academy. The Kalgoorlie product stands at 196 centimetres and for a big man, his pace and skills are elite, making him a stand-out in this year’s State 18s Squad. So far, Miller has won 123 hit-outs (ranked fourth in the competition) at an average of 21 per game. However what separates Miller from the other ruckman is his work-rate around the ground. He is so far averaging 13 possessions, three marks and three tackles and has kicked five goals in six games. His best game came against Perth in round two when he gathered 16 possessions, won 30 hit-outs and kicked a goal.
