Player Bio

An exciting midfielder, Jye Caldwell joined the GIANTS from the Bendigo Pioneers with the club’s first pick (11th overall) in the 2018 NAB AFL Draft. Powerful, explosive and damaging, Caldwell is an excitement machine around stoppages. He represented Victoria Country at the 2018 NAB Under-18 National Championships and was also a talented junior basketballer, cricketer and boxer, claiming a junior Victorian boxing title.

A gifted midfielder with quality foot skills on both sides of his body, Caldwell looks a star of the future. He had some injury issues last year, but it wasn’t enough to scare away the GIANTS, who took him with their first pick at the 2018 NAB AFL Draft. Caldwell is a strong-bodied on-baller who can explode away from clearance situations, but also has the vision to use his hands to win the ball and distribute it to teammates at stoppages.
