PLAYER BIO

The GIANTS signed former Commonwealth Games decathlete Jake Stein as a category B rookie. Stein is an exciting prospect hailing from Penrith in Western Sydney. A World Youth Athletic Championships Gold Medalist in 2011, Stein represented Australia at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Stein is eligible for a category B rookie contract having not been registered in an Australian Football competition in the last three years. Having grown up playing soccer and athletics, Stein has also been courted by Rugby League teams in recent years. Stein has shown impressive development as a defender at NEAFL level over the past two seasons and won the club’s NEAFL Development Award in 2018.

The former decathlete and Category B rookie had a consistent 2018 playing deep in defence and won the GIANTS’ NEAFL development award. The strong-bodied backman has improved the offensive side of his game, but still has plenty of work to do.

The former decathlete and soccer player spent last year learning the game as a Category B rookie in the NEAFL and showed promising signs playing in defence. Still has plenty of developing to do, but has the athleticism and size to keep improving.

The former Commonwealth Games decathlete is obviously a talented runner and won the club's 3km time trial when first-to-fourth years returned to training. Played soccer as a junior before concentrating on athletics, and will be a project player this year.
