Josh Gibson

HEIGHT:189 cm
WEIGHT: 93 kg
JNR CLUB: East Burwood

Gibson’s 2015 campaign underlined why he is so valuable to the Hawks and why his recruitment from North Melbourne at the end of 2009 was a stroke of genius. He led the Hawks in marks (207) and time on the ground (98.9 per cent) and was in the top five for disposals, uncontested possessions, contested marks and rebound 50s.

He won his second best and fairest, first All-Australian selection and played in his third successive flag. Being able to use Gibson as the third man-up and defensive quarterback sets the team up beautifully. Signed a 12-month contract extension, but seems good to go for even longer after that.

Player honours:
Best and Fairest 2013, 2015
All-Australian 2015
Premiership sides 2013, 2014, 2015.

Draft history: Pick 6, 2005 Rookie Draft (North Melbourne)
