Orazio was brought to the EFC from Norwood, SA, largely in part to now Assistant Coach, Nathan Bassett. He averaged 15 touches in his U18s venture this year, while averaging 12 in the SANFL. A lightning quick, lightly framed player, Fantasia can offload the ball at top speed with great accuracy, and generally reacts very well to situations. He is extremely dangerous around the big sticks, and, although we're unlikely to see him in the 2014 seniors, he could be a likely sort once he builds up some strength and size.
