Connor Rozee (born 22 January 2000) is a professional Australian rules footballer who plays for the Port Adelaide Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). He was recruited by Port Adelaide with the 5th draft pick in the 2018 AFL Draft.[1]

Early life[edit | edit source]

Rozee was born in South Australia and played junior football with Port Augusta club South Augusta, where his father Robert was a premiership player, club champion and club coach. In 2016, he won the Kevin Sheehan Medal as the best player of the Under 16 AFL National Championship while also winning South Australia’s Most Valuable Player award.[2]. Rozee played for South Australia in the AFL Under 18 Championships but was not happy with his performance. He averaged 13 disposals across the carnival, showed some flashes and his state claimed the title, but it wasn't the standout period he was hoping for.[3]. After the championship, Power premiership player Josh Carr gave Rozee his opportunity to shine at league level in the SANFL. The North Adelaide coach backed the teenager to perform against men and Rozee repaid his faith with an impressive campaign including a couple of vital performances in the Roosters’ successful finals series.[2] Rozee went on to feature in the club's SANFL premiership win, with his improved form at the back end of the season against senior players showing why he is in the elite group of prospects at the top end of the draft.[3] At the AFL Draft Combine, Rozee finished in the top 10 for the standing vertical jump and running vertical jump tests and agility test and was second overall in the 20m sprint (2.91 seconds).[2] The Port Adelaide Football club selected Rozee at pick 5 in the 2018 AFL draft.[4]
