Tom Atkins Biography

Wednesday, 5 December 2018
After five years in Geelong's VFL program, a second best and fairest award for Tom Atkins in 2018 proved too much for Cats recruiters to refuse, selecting him at pick 11 in the NAB AFL Rookie Draft.

And while he has forged his name as an inside tackling machine at state league level, the 23-year-old believes a star-studded Geelong midfield might force him to look elsewhere.

"If I had to guess, I would probably say a small forward role and maybe helping out in the midfield where needed," Atkins said.

"I played midfield most of this year but might have played as a small half forward a few times, but two or three years ago I pretty much played the whole year in that role.

"From that I have learnt a bit of the craft, but obviously it is a different thing doing it at AFL level."

Friday, 23 November 2018
Geelong select Tom Atkins with pick No.11 in the 2018 Rookie Draft.

The 23-year-old gets his opportunity on an AFL list after starring for the Bendigo Bank Cats in the VFL in 2018.

A dual VFL Best and Fairest winner, Atkins also captained the side in 2018.

Monday, 21 August 2017
AFL-listed Geelong player Tom Atkins has further enhanced his draft chances, laying an equal-VFL record 23 tackles in a thrilling five-point victory over Collingwood at Olympic Park Oval.

Atkins, 21, also gathered 25 disposals and kicked two goals in a clear best on ground display for the Cats. His absurd stat line included 21 contested possessions and 13 clearances.

Atkins joins Carlton-listed midfielder Nick Graham, who laid 23 tackles in a VFL game last year, in holding the all-time VFL tackling record.
