It’s not only a credit to the lads whose footy ability gives them an opportunity at representative level, it reflects an enormous amount of support from their parents, their coaches and mentors over the years, their team mates, and their footy club.

As a club, we should all be proud of our junior program and the dedication of many individuals that allows those selected Junior Jets players to be recognised in this way.

Once again, The Jets have featured at elite junior selection this year.

Hugo Munn (ex-junior) has been chosen in the Under 18 State Squad to play in the National Carnival this week.
Hugo’s brother, Oscar, is one of our A Grade players and Hugo played his junior footy between 2013 – 2017 at The Jets. Joining Hugo is Tom Sparrow, Tommy played under 16.5 for the Jets in 2016. On behalf of all at the club, we wish them both well for this carnival and their AFL aspirations.

James Borlase and Ethan Schwerdt have made it to the final squad for State U16’s, continuing their ongoing successes at that level. Both lads have a family heritage of elite football in their blood and seem destined to continue it. Good luck to James and Ethan for a successful carnival. Commiserations to Tom Powell on missing the final cut but an exceptional effort to be in the final running.

In the Under 15 age group, Brad Jefferies* and Declan Hortel* were selected to represent the Croweaters. Jayden Davis, who plays up an age division for Unley, has also been selected for the second year running. Jayden came to The Jets in 2016 starting in the Under 13’s and is an exciting future prospect to keep an eye on. Felix Packer has been named an emergency, and bad luck to Cormack O’Reilly who was very close to selection but unfortunately just missed out.

We wish all these fine young men the best of luck for their respective upcoming representative footy and for their higher football aspirations. GO JETS!
