Tyson Stengle Biography

Friday, 10 February 2023
Tyson Stengle signs a new deal with Geelong to remain at the club until the end of 2024.

"Right now, signing a 12-month extension was the right thing for me. However, I see a long football future for myself here at Geelong," he said.

"Last year was a memorable year for the club and for me personally, and for the next two years I'm looking forward to working hard to keep improving and doing myself, my family and the Cats fans proud."

Saturday, 24 September 2022

Thursday, 10 March 2022
Geelong captain Joel Selwood is excited about what Tyson Stengle can bring to the Geelong forward line in 2022.

"He has lateral movement that we haven't had in our forward line, probably. He has a goal sense for a young guy, a small guy, that we think will really help us," Selwood said of Stengle.

Thursday, 27 January 2022
Cats recruit Tyson Stengle has emerged as a genuine chance to come straight into Chris Scott's round one side.

"Once you've got Tyson's trust, he really opens up and he's a great young man who is still learning his way. He's only 23 years of age and he's gone through a fair bit in his life as well, so to come into a new environment, he's fitted in really well," Cats assistant coach Shaun Grigg said of Stengle.

Friday, 5 November 2021
The Cats sign Tyson Stengle as a delisted free agent.

Stengle and the Crows agreed to part ways in March after a string of off-field incidents.

After parting ways with the Crows in 2021, the 22-year-old has spent the year playing for Woodville-West Torrens, kicking three goals in its recent SANFL premiership. He booted 44 majors across 19 games this season, averaging 14 touches.

"Tyson has shown an ability to play at AFL level, and he had a very successful season in the SANFL. We believe Tyson has the ability to have a long career at AFL level and he is a positive addition to our playing list," general manager of football Simon Lloyd said.

Thursday, 7 October 2021
Newly-appointed Cats assistant coach Eddie Betts is tightlipped on Tyson Stengle's potential move to Geelong, but says he has spoken to him.

Stengle lived with the recently retired champion in Adelaide, before Betts and his family moved back to Carlton ahead of the 2020 season.

"I felt really bad because he lived there with me and my wife (Anna) and we were pretty hard on him and kept him on the straight and narrow," Betts said.

"He's 22 so the best footy is ahead of him. I really hope he gets another chance at AFL footy, whether it's here (at Geelong) or somewhere else. My best interests are that Tyson gets back and playing AFL footy. If he comes to Geelong, that would be great."

Wednesday, 6 October 2021

The 22-year-old has attracted the attention of multiple AFL clubs and is a cousin of retired champion Eddie Betts, who is joining the Cats in a development role.

"We put forward a proposal that he would remain on our list for the balance of his contract But we deemed it appropriate that he did that outside of the (AFL) football program in 2021 and he play in the SANFL," Adelaide's head of football Adam Kelly said.

"Tyson, as is his right, he wasn't accepting of that. And because the two parties were unable to reach an agreement on that, we have decided to part ways."

“He always looks dangerous around goals, particularly at ground level, and the defensive pressure he brings inside forward 50 is exactly what we want from him each week.”

Wednesday, 22 April 2020
Adelaide coach Matthew Nicks explains why the club did not publicly release details of Tyson Stengle's recent drink-driving charge until eight days later.

"In hindsight, you look back, could we have come out with a short statement (when initially told). We didn't have a lot of information early and that is why we didn't," Nicks said.

"But I totally understand why there has been a lot of questions asked about that. It was nothing more than making sure we got the detail right before coming out. And that was all about looking after our player and that's what we're about and we'll be like that going forward."

"Tyson Stengle (will be) jumping into the No.18," Betts told radio station FIVEaa.
