Matthew Kreuzer enjoyed another solid AFL season in 2013. The big man led the side in hitouts (428) despite missing seven matches through injury.

The 24-year-old’s stand-out performance of the year came in the one-point win over the Kangaroos in Round 17. Kreuzer finished the game with 17 touches, including a match-saving mark in the dying seconds.

Off the field Kreuzer’s love of motorbikes saw him take on a new role in 2013, as the Ambassador for the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.

Draft history: 2007 NAB AFL Draft priority selection (Carlton) No. 1 overall.
