Mac Andrew Biography

Sunday, 5 May 2024
Mac Andrew says he realized the hard work he had to do to get back into the Suns' senior side after some tough and honest chats with Gold Coast coach Damien Hardwick over the summer.

"He thought there were people that deserved to play over me, which I agreed with at the time," Andrew said.

"I thought if I want to get back in the team, I've got to change something up. I had that 'head down, bum up' attitude and grind my way back into the team.

"I had chats with those around me, family and close friends. I told them how I felt about it. They all came back to me with the same advice get back and show them where you belong."

Thursday, 25 November 2021
Gold Coast select Mac Andrew with pick No.5 in the 2021 National Draft.

Draft Report: A Melbourne Next Generation Academy member, Andrew has emerged ?out of nowhere? to sit as a likely top-10 draft pick this year. The athletic tall was added to the NAB AFL Academy squad in April after a dazzling start to the season with the Stingrays and caught the eye in the Academy team's exhibition match against Geelong's VFL team in April. In that match, Andrew was used at full-forward and full-back with limited impact in the opening three quarters. But his favoured position is in the ruck and he shone when given an opportunity in that position in the last quarter. The mobile big man covers the ground effortlessly, is a nice kick, possesses a giant jump and becomes an extra midfielder once the ball hits the ground out of the ruck contest. His upside is enormous.
