PICK 28: Sophie Li

Keeping breaks down AFLW picks Damien Keeping spoke to Carlton Media after today's AFLW Draft to break down all our picks.

SOPHIE Li will don the navy blue next season, after being selected by Carlton with pick 28 in the 2017 AFL Women’s draft.

Touted as a natural athlete with strength and speed, Adelaide-born Li will add depth to Carlton’s midfield.

After an exceptional season with Norwood in the women’s SANFL competition, it was no surprise she came runner-up in its inaugural best and fairest award. 

We’ve selected Sophie Li from Norwood (SA) with pick 28. Welcome, Sophie! #BoundByBlue #AFLWDraft

“Sophie is a prolific ball winner and will be an asset to our midfield,” women’s senior coach Damien Keeping said. 

“Not only can she run all day through the middle, but she can also make an impact up forward – she knows how to put herself in dangerous positions.” 

Welcome, Sophie.
