Bio

Background

After being surprisingly overlooked in the 2015 National Draft, hard-working midfielder Nick O’Kearney didn’t have to wait long to find a club in the Rookie Draft, with the Saints pouncing with selection No. 5.

Lightly built but with a big tank, O’Kearney enjoyed a dominant year in 2015, averaging 26 disposals for the Calder Cannons to win their best and fairest, as well as earning selection in the TAC Cup Team of the Year on a half-back flank.

The 18-year-old Victorian constructed a great national carnival with Vic Metro, earning All Australian selection in a back pocket after averaging 21 possessions across five games.

O’Kearney joins Parade Collage school mate and Vic Metro teammate, Jade Gresham, at the Saints after the club acquired the midfielder with its first pick in the National Draft.
