Jarman Impey says he spent
the last of his four years at Port in mourning and is happy to be closer to family after making the move to Hawthorn.
"I just came to that decision where I wanted to be closer to her and my little brother and family," Impey said.
"Family comes first for everyone, and that was the decision that was made.
"I think at the end of the season I became mentally weak, I guess you could say. I had a big year, obviously the first year of dad passing and … football wasn't probably my No.1 priority – family was."

Jarman Impey has made his way
to Hawthorn after the Hawks traded pick No.33 to Port Adelaide as part of a complex deal.

"His outstanding speed and endurance will be a really valuable asset and his ability to play at both ends of the ground is a great advantage," Hawthorn list manager Graham Wright said.
"Jarman is a competitive character, who goes hard at the footy, which makes him an exciting acquisition and a terrific addition to our list."

"I'd love to make it for him and I know where he'd end up if I was making it but he'll make a decision in the next coming weeks and he'll make the right decision for what's best for him."

"He's living with Jackson Trengove and they're really close and doing a lot of things together.

"They've got a really good relationship."

"The club has obviously handed down some sanctions, but at the same time 'Jars' is a kid who has been through some tough stuff and the club has really wrapped their arms around him," Tom Jonas, a member of Port's leadership group, told reporters.
"He's (Impey) in a good spot as a human and he's also able to come out and train and (hopefully) he can provide for us on game day as well."

Shutting down Fremantle's Hayden Ballantyne has earned Port Adelaide youngster Jarman Impey the round eight NAB AFL Rising Star nomination.
Impey, in just his eighth AFL game, kept the Dockers' forward goalless and held him to just nine touches in the Power's 18-point win at Adelaide Oval.
"It's been exciting to play on big name players – I was watching them on TV last year and now I'm walking up to them and putting my arm across their chest and defending them," Impey said.
"[Ken Hinkley] backed me to do the job and it was good to get his trust and the team's trust; he was probably a bit nervous about putting me on [Ballantyne] but it's all paid off."
Hayden Ballantyne undergoes minor jaw surgery after a clash with Port Adelaide's Jarman Impey but is still expected to line up this week against Geelong.
Impey was trying to gather the ball and Ballantyne came in low in an attempt to spoilt him, and hit the right side of his jaw against the Power youngster's shoulder.
"I think we were both going for the ball and he ended up under me and there was a bit of a clash," Impey said.
"He was a bit sore for a while and I told him to go off so I could have a rest. He stayed on – he wasn't too bad and played the game out."

Port Adelaide vice-captain Brad Ebert says draftee Jarman Impey has been impressing with his pre-season form.
"Jarman's come in and stepped up right away," Ebert said.
"Even in Dubai, there were a couple of training sessions there where he dodged around a couple of blokes and took off and you just sort of look and go, 'Oh, this guy's got some skills'."
Tuesday, 26 November 2013
Despite spending the bulk of his junior career up forward and in the midfield, Port Adelaide draftee Jarman Impey has no qualms about potentially spending more time in defence.
"This year I played a bit in defence and was really happy with it. I reckon I played my best footy [back there]," Impey said.
"A bit of run, a bit of creating the play, running the lines and hitting up a target or two.
"I think I can play various positions… in the (Under-18s) carnival for Vic Country I played a bit in the middle, the backline and also up forward."
