    HENRY SCHADE :thumbsu:


    Henry Schade – 2011 AFL Draft Prospect

    Name: Henry Schade
    Position: Defender
    Age (by draft day): 18
    Height: 194m
    Weight: 81kg

    Quick Notes on Henry Schade

    Tall defender
    Good agility
    Good closing speed
    Good in a one-on-one situation
    Raking left foot kick
    Henry Schade in detail
    Henry Schade represented Tasmania at this years Under 18 championships and was solid enough to earn All Australian selection.

    Schade is a tall defender who has the height and athletic scope required to play on the tall forwards of today. His agility is great for a tall unit, and combined with his great closing speed makes him a versitile player.

    Schade reads the play well and as such is good in a one-on-one contest. His raking left foot kick also allows him to clear the defensive 50 with ease.

    Give him a couple of years and he will be a very solid player for you guys. Surprised by the Sam Fisher comparison, was thinking more along the lines of Fletcher personally.

    Maybe Dustin Fletcher's body with Sam Fisher's run and carry and attack on the man / ball :cool:

    I reckon the GCS have the steal of the bunch.

    Within the GCS environment Schade is potentially the player you build a backline around for 10-12 years.

    He has just turned 18 years old (8-11-2011) and probably still has 2-3cm of growth left in him.

    Presently at 196cm and 81kg, he has sublime foot and hand skills, a fantasic leap (top 10% in 260 draft/state screening boys), excellent closing speed and does not panic under pressure.

    More than capable in the immediate term of playing HBF or wing, he would absolutely carve up the opposition with long pin point accuracy kicks deep into the forward line.

    While presently played as a fullback, I reckon potentially he is a CHB. This would free him up and allow him to develop into a "A" grade player.

    Thanks for the info GTB.

    Did anyone else see him in that new video on Suns TV? He's so white! I mean, seriously, there's white and then there is ghost-white. Never been to Tasmania myself, but I hope there's a sun down there. ;) Hopefully he can adjust to the heat well.

    He's also really, really, really skinny. Never seen a player that's as skinny as he in the AFL before. Will need at least 3 years you'd think to put the required muscle on.

    We have son, but we try and avoid it. There is basically no ozone layer so it burns. :)

    He will be a bit of a project player, but if his skills are good enough, his weight won't matter a great deal, just don't put him on monsters like J-Brown or Dawes in his first few years. Could be employed as more of a Maxwell/Fletcher style role initially.

    From memory Grant Birchall from Hawthorn is around 193cm and 85kgs and a left footer.

    Out of the 250 odd boys tested nationally for draft/state screening, Schade was in the top 10% for height and just as importantly in the top 10% for 5 metre vertical leap off preferred foot.

    So he is tall, great leap, left sided (but equally good on right side) with long, low accurate kicks, very good closing speed, fantastic decision making, runs lines and has a bit of pig in him.

    It is probably no coincidence Scott Clayton nabbed him!!! Yeh I love the Tassie boys, but we have produced a few decent footballers over the last 50 years or so. Richardson, Hart, Baldock, Pritchard, etc, etc

    Likely to add 4-5kg to his 81kg frame which makes him a a real contender to play this year. If you analyse Schade's age, height, weight, positioned played in comparison to the rest of the GCS list you might understand where I am coming from.

    If he doesn't get seriously injured throughout the journey Schade will be the number 1 backman that the GCS build their defence around.

    This kid has serious upside and is a potential 10 year player!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Tassie boys probably won't have the same "return home" tendency as some of the other southern staters, since they don't have another AFL team based there & enticing them back. If they can handle the heat in Qld, they'll probably enjoy being a Gold Coast Sun.

    :thumbsu: the comments that he's a 10 yr CHB prospect
    and that in the meantime, he could be given some blooding games on a HF flank .
    Brilliant notion to add to the mix. Eat up Henry ! :D
