Player Bio

Ben Long was selected with St Kilda’s first pick (No. 25) in the 2016 NAB AFL Draft, following an impressive season for a handful of sides.

The Northern Territory midfielder captained his state in the division two under-18 championships, before being selected to play for the Allies in division one.

Once the school season concluded with Melbourne Grammar, the 19-year-old finished the year by playing seven games for Footscray in the VFL, including the premiership win over Casey Scorpions.

In the penultimate week of the VFL season, Long put his name up in lights by kicking six goals against Collingwood to help propel the Bulldogs into the Grand Final.

Having played predominantly through the midfield and across half-back during his underage career, Long flaunted his ability around goal in the back end of the season, cementing his status amongst this year’s draft class.
