Player Bio

Melton’s Adam Kennedy joined the GIANTS from the Western Jets in 2011 after being overlooked in the 2010 draft. The defender made an outstanding AFL debut in Round 1, 2012 collecting 28 disposals and taking 11 marks and has gone on to be a key member of the GIANTS defence.
 

Kennedy is developing into a reliable member of the Giants’ backline, adding 19 games last year to the 15 he managed in his rookie campaign. Averaging 14 disposals and four marks an outing, he has been given some big defensive assignments and can move through the midfield.

Lacking the profile of some of his teammates entering 2012, Kennedy did enough to line-up against the Sydney Swans in round one. No less than 28 possessions in that game then brought him plenty of attention. Kennedy would play 15 games for the year and while he suffered a lull midway through the season, he impressed all with his disposal, running ability and decision-making.

An elite athlete with great running ability, Kennedy joins the Giants as a mature-age player who previously nominated for the NAB AFL Draft in 2010. Selected in the Vic Metro side in the 2011 National Carnival, he also captained the Western Jets in the TAC Cup.
