Sam Rowe was undoubtedly Carlton’s feel-good story of 2014.

After recovering from testicular cancer to play 10 games in his debut season in 2013, the former mature-age recruit ran out for 21 matches in 2014 and was a pillar in the Blues’ defence alongside Michael Jamison.

He finished the season ranked seventh in the league overall for total one percenters and eighth for one percenters per game.

Rowe’s breakout year was capped off with him claiming the Blues Coterie Most Improved Player Award and in 2015 he has been elevated to Carlton’s leadership group.
 
Draft history: 2006 Rookie Draft selection (Sydney) No. 62; 2011 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Carlton) No. 44 overall.
