Christian Petracca - AIS/AFL Academy
The Eastern Ranges would like to congratulate Christian Petracca on being added into the Second Tier of the AIS/AFL Academy scholarship program for 2014.
Christian had a very successful 2013, where he represented Vic Metro U/18's in the National Championships, finished equal second in the Eastern Ranges Best & Fairest, won the Eastern Ranges goal kicking & was a member of the 2013 Eastern Ranges TAC Cup grand final victory.
The members of the Level Two AIS/AFL Academy program will be afforded some wonderful development opportunities next year, with this years crop travelled to Europe & spent time training with AFL clubs, learning the standards expected at the elite level.
Christian is a powerfully built forward who uses his strength and marking ability to great advantage.
We would like to again congratulate Christian on this wonderful achievement, and we look forward to following his progress next year as a top age player for the Ranges.
