Player Bio

Devon Smith is a tough small forward from the Geelong Falcons in Victoria. From the small town of Lara, Smith was drafted to the GIANTS with pick 14 in the 2011 NAB AFL Draft. After picking up a NAB AFL Rising Star nomination in his debut season, Smith was awarded the GIANTS Standards Award at the 2013 Kevin Sheedy Medal. He was named in the GIANTS’ emerging leaders group before the 2014 season.
 

The young small forward made another significant step forward in 2013, playing 18 games and kicking 16 goals. The highlight was his 26-disposal, three-goal effort against Gold Coast in round five, while he averaged better than 16 touches and four tackles for the year. His season ended early following hip surgery, but the tough and talented youngster is establishing a permanent place.

Only five Giants managed 20 games or more in season one and only one of them was a teenager – Devon Smith. Recognised for his toughness and ability to get forward and kick goals as a junior, despite his 174cm frame, he brought those exact same attributes to AFL level. Rested for one game and missing the other with a minor calf problem, Smith won a Rising Star nomination for the round 19 win over Port Adelaide.

A hard-working midfielder, Smith also has a knack for getting forward, kicking six goals among 27 disposals in a game against Northern Territory in the Under-18 National Championships. Recovered well from a hip injury to have a strong 2011 season with the Geelong Falcons in the TAC Cup. Has plenty of speed and is also happy to lay tackles and throw his body around.
