Congratulations to University Blues & U19’s Big V young gun, Jack Sheridan, who has been named the Round 11 Men’s Rising Star nominee.
What the Club said:
“Jack came to University Blues from Geelong in March 2016 when he came to Melbourne University and was a resident at St Mary’s College.
He was a regular in our Under 19s during that season following a limited pre-season. Over this recent preseason he spent more time in Melbourne and completed a full preseason and participated in the senior practice matches.
He was rewarded with a senior selection from Round 1 even though still being eligible for Under 19s and has been a constant presence for the past 11 rounds.
Jack reminds everyone of a number of AFL ruckmen like a young Max Gawn or Toby Nankervis in that he has the size and talent to become a great ruckmen in the future, but needs to grow into the role and gain some experience in ruck-craft.
Jack is a great addition to the club with a fantastic work ethic and a really friendly and engaging demeanour, always with a smile on his face. \
Jack is a hard competitor on the field and has fitted in well and is very coachable. He is consistently working with the senior coaches and is learning all the time.”
