Player Bio

Background

King was selected by St Kilda with pick No. 4 in the 2018 National Draft.

The agile key forward was touted as a potential No. 1 pick before a knee injury cut short his final year in the TAC Cup.

A lifelong St Kilda supporter, King was presented with the hallowed No. 12 jumper by St Kilda legend Nick Riewoldt, the player her idolised as a boy.

Although armed with freakish aerial ability and a lethal kick, the 18-year-old boasts exceptional agility at ground level and an enormous tank to cover plenty of ground, much like his predecessor in Riewoldt.

With a long career ahead of him, King will be managed carefully in 2019 as he continues his recovery from injury.
