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 one, 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’ club champion. Cameron has been the club's leading goalkicker in every season since 2012. Off-field Cameron is a keen fisherman and enjoys camping and hunting with his country teammates.

Won a seventh successive goalkicking award in 2018 but it was another frustrating season for the gun forward, with a five-game suspension in round 14 derailing what looked to be heading towards a career-best year. Cameron booted just 11 goals in his six games after the ban and only three in the GIANTS’ two finals and he must have a consistent season to help his side make a fourth finals campaign in a row. At his best, the athletic forward is a match-winner, so if he can stay disciplined and healthy, which he hasn’t been able to do over the past two seasons, he remains one of Leon Cameron’s most important players.

Started last year in outstanding form with 13 goals in the first three games and was on target for a career-best haul when he had 39 after round 14, but hamstring issues cut his impact signicantly. Cameron missed four of the last seven games of the regular season and then was ruled out for the year after playing in the GIANTS’ qualifying final loss to the Crows. Enjoyed his role as a free-wheeling forward and the freedom to roam all over the ground made him a dangerous weapon for the GIANTS. If he can get his body right, he will continue that role this year.

A NAB Challenge suspension cost the star forward the first four games of the 2016 season, but he maintained his dominance as the GIANTS' leading goalkicker, finishing with 53 goals in 20 games. Starred with four goals on All Australian defender Dane Rampe in the club's first final, but was hardly sighted against the Bulldogs in the preliminary final and will be keen to have a bigger impact in his sixth season. Got more help with fellow forwards Toby Greene and Jonathon Patton having career-best seasons in 2016 and will no doubt be a match-winner again this year.

Cameron was again the team's most lethal forward and booted a career-best 63 goals, one more than his 2013 All-Australian season. The brilliant left-footer kicked seven goals in a game twice, against Hawthorn in round six and Carlton in round 22. Cameron's tag as the GIANTS' 'franchise player' was consolidated when he signed a contract extension before the 2015 season that will keep him at the club until at least the end of the 2020 season.

Coming off an All-Australian season in 2013, plenty was expected of Cameron last year. Unfortunately for the budding star, injuries prevented him from getting going. A perforated eardrum proved a hindrance, but repeated ankle problems were the real issue, limiting him to 14 games. He still topped the GWS goalkicking for a third consecutive season with 29, but it was a frustrating year and he should bounce back to his best this 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.
