Blaine Boekhorst is a 21-year-old pacey midfielder known for his run and carry. The former state volleyballer has more recently utilised his jumping and movement skills in the AFL and is also recognised as a great ball user.
AFL.com.au says: The 21-year-old midfielder really burst to prominence at the Swan Districts this season. He had played just 25 WAFL matches in the previous three seasons but he played 19 of 20 games this year and was a force in the midfield. He averaged nearly 21 touches across the season. Has a knack for taking the game on with run and carry, has good pace and breaks the line. He has really improved in winning contested football and there he has attracted some interest from AFL clubs following his WAFL season.
