Thursday, 6 June 2019
Fremantle will have first call on an exciting West Australian prospect, who is shaping as a possible first-round pick at November's NAB AFL Draft.

Liam Henry has emerged as one of the most talented players in his state, with the scintillating forward/midfielder's form catching the eye at colts level in WA.

The indigenous teenager is tied to the Dockers under Next Generation Academy rules and trained with the club last year.

"Liam's a really special individual. He's really well organised in his life. He's an intelligent boy and a part of our leadership group as well," West Australian state talent manager Adam Jones said.

"His on-field prowess is he's a really smart player as well. Whether he's playing wing, forward or as an inside midfielder, he's clean and knows how to find the football.

"He makes really good decisions, is composed and can kick both sides of his body, so he's another really good prospect we've got coming through."

Monday, 7 May 2018
Jack Henry is the 2018 round 7 AFL Rising Star Nominee after an 18-disposal, 11-mark effort in the Cats' win over GWS.

Henry grew up idolising the Cats during their golden era and was in the MCG stands to watch them win the 2007, 2009 and 2011 premierships.

He lives with his parents and two brothers within walking distance of Geelong headquarters, and still owns a book full of player signatures gathered at the gym across the road that his mum works at.

"It is pretty crazy just going into the club and seeing some of the guys I've grown up watching, and now I'm working with them," Henry said.

"I'm lucky how everything's panned out; being picked up by Geelong and living down the road. It's a dream come true.

"But I've been here for the best part of a year-and-a-half now, so it's worn off a little now I'm not as star struck, anyway."

"He's well and truly earnt his spot," Scott said.

"We're hopeful he can keep playing in a similar manner to the way he's been going at VFL level. If he does that, he'll have an impact on the game.

"He's a very flexible player, that's one of the things he's always had in his favour. Even as a relatively raw player coming onto our list, he's got more of an athletics background."
