Redlegs young gun Max Michalanney drafted to Crows

Norwood teenager Max Michalanney was drafted to the Adelaide Football Club with the 17th Pick in the 2022 National Draft last night. 

Michalanney – son of four-time Premiership Redleg Jim Michalanney – has become Adelaide’s first ever father-son selection in a National Draft after officially joining the Crows.

The Sydney Swans originally placed a bid on Michalanney with their first pick in the Draft, before the Crows matched the selection to take the 191cm defender.

He was this year named in the U18 All-Australian Team, and made his League Debut with Norwood in Round 9 in the 2022 Season.

The National Draft continues tonight with Norwood’s Baynen Lowe and Phoenix Foster hoping to hear their names called out.
