Player Bio

Jeremy Cameron arrived at the GIANTS from the tiny town of Dartmoor in Victoria at the age of 17 as an underage recruit. Cameron didn’t begin playing football until the age of 16 but burst on to the AFL scene, making his debut in Round 1, 2012 and finishing his first year as the GIANTS’ leading goal-kicker. 2013 saw Cameron finish third in the Coleman Medal, become the first GIANT to be named in the All-Australian team and win the Kevin Sheedy Medal as the GIANTS’ Best and Fairest player. Cameron was named in the GIANTS’ emerging leaders group before the 2014 season.
 

Billed as a future star, Cameron leapt into that position in only his second season with an exhilarating 2013 campaign. At just 20, he kept himself in the Coleman Medal hunt all season before finishing third behind Hawthorn star Jarryd Roughead with 62 goals. It led to All-Australian selection and a best and fairest for one of the game’s pre-eminent young prospects.

Billed as an exciting young key forward, Cameron surpassed all expectations in 2012. The club's first ever NAB AFL Rising Star nominee after a four-goal haul against North Melbourne in round two, he ended the season as the club's leading goal kicker with 29 from his 16 appearances. He also finished second in the Rising Star award and third in the best and fairest and looms as a star of the future.

Hailing from Dartmoor, a tiny rural town in south-west Victoria, Cameron is a power forward. Standing 196cm and weighing just under 90kg, the teenager played for North Ballarat in the TAC Cup.
