Player Bio

Alice Springs’ Curtly Hampton arrived at the GIANTS as a Northern Territory Zone Selection in 2010, two years before the club would begin in the AFL. Hampton spent 2011 playing with the GIANTS in the NEAFL competition before making his debut in the GIANTS’ inaugural game against the Sydney Swans in Round 1, 2012. Originally drafted as an athletic forward and midfielder, Hampton switched to defence and has enjoyed success as a rebounding defender, playing off the back-line for the GIANTS. Hampton was named in the GIANTS’ emerging leaders group before the 2014 season.
 

Billed as one of the GIANTS’ big improvers in the pre-season, Hampton backed that up with some polished performances off half-back in the first seven rounds of 2014. An ankle problem interrupted his progress before a serious shoulder injury ruled him out for seven weeks. He made it back for one more senior appearance in round 23 and, if he can maintain his fitness, big things await the smooth-moving defender.

Finally feeling settled in his new backline role late last year, Hampton looks set to take another leap forward in 2014. He admits it took time to adjust, having been a forward throughout his junior career, but with the experienced pair of Heath Shaw and Josh Hunt alongside him, the sky is the limit for the athletic youngster.

Starting the year in the forward line, Hampton struggled for consistency and to stick to the team ethos. But a switch into defence midway through the season transformed his entire rookie campaign. Able to use his athleticism to contain opponents and also provide rebound out of defence, Hampton played the final 10 straight games of the season and 17 overall in an encouraging year.

A highly athletic forward or midfielder from Alice Springs, Hampton spent two years with the AIS-AFL Academy before attending Immanuel College in Adelaide. Was restricted by foot and groin injuries, but has returned to full fitness and possesses impressive poise and agility.
