Dylan Buckley, the son of triple Carlton premiership player Jim Buckley, is undeniably one of the rising stars of the AFL.

Recruited under the father/son rule in the 2011 National Draft, Buckley was a mainstay in the Carlton squad for the first half of the 2014 season before separate injuries cut his season short.

His eye-catching run and dash off half-back didn’t go unrewarded however, with a Rising Star nomination in Round 2, while his leadership qualities on and off the field saw him take out the Best Clubman Award.

With a fourth pre-season under his belt, big things are expected from “SOJ” (Son of Jim) in 2015.
 
Draft history: 2011 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round Father/Son selection No. 62 overall.
