|V/AFL Clubs||Western Bulldogs|
Adam Cooney was widely regarded as the finest footballer under eighteen in the land and of his age when taken by the Western Bulldogs as the number one choice in the 2003 national draft. The former West Adelaide on-baller has since gone on to stamp himself as one of the nation's pre-eminent footballers of any age, a status enhanced in 2008 by his inclusion in the AFL All Australian team and shock victory in the Brownlow Medal. As of 2008 Cooney had played 112 AFL games and kicked 113 goals.
