An exceptional kick on either side of his body, Short's kicking ability has been likened to that of Hawthorn star Sam Mitchell. He averaged almost 22 possessions a game in the TAC Cup and finished the season as one of the competition's most efficient ball-winners. A broken jaw interrupted the start of his year and meant he missed selection for Vic Metro. But he had an impressive season nonetheless, displaying terrific speed and agility to go with his elite kick. He was played mainly off the wing this year, but can move forward or into the middle.
