STRENGTHS: Speed and athleticism, line breaking, rebounding, size, strength
IMPROVEMENTS: Efficiency by foot and decision making, tackle pressure
Mihail Lochowiak is a talented speed machine, who has played predominately high half-back and has been a true rebounding defender in most games. He is a great size and has speed and strength which allow him to be a rebound 50 player capable of plenty of run and carry, and kicking over zones. He did not get a lot of opportunity in the South Australian Under 18s side during the championships, but was a consistent performer for Sturt at Reserve and Under 18s level. He is player that does all the hard work to win footy and beat his opponent, but can sometimes bring all his hard work undone with an errant kick or disposal. With that area to tidy up and improve, he has athletic traits to get him to AFL level.
