Position: Key Position Defender
West Perth’s Chapman is an athletic key defender who boasts high-level composure on the ball. Having earned a spot in his state’s Under 16 side in 2018, Chapman went on to impress at WAFL Colts level for the Falcons, before being selected to play in last year’s Under 17 Futures All Star showcase. He may measure up at just under the traditional key position size, but Chapman is terrific in the centre half-back role at junior level, and has all the makings of a third tall as he jumps the grades, perhaps even roaming further afield. The 18-year-old’s endurance base and class on the ball may allow for that, with shrewd reading of the play and sound disposal by foot also key features of his game. Chapman recently made his WAFL League debut, and is rising into first round draft contention.
