Joint James Gosse medallists Kane McAuliffe and Jacob Lochowiak poised to tackle AFL dream
They’ve claimed a historic joint SAAS First XVIII Best and Fairest win and now rising stars Kane McAuliffe and Jacob Lochowiak have set their sights on football’s biggest stage.

College football guns Kane McAuliffe and Jacob Lochowiak believe their best is yet to come after splitting the First XVIII James Gosse Medal.
The pair, from Prince Alfred College and Sacred Heart respectively, were jointly awarded the best and fairest title for the first time in almost 60 years.

McAuliffe, a 16-year-old mid who also plays for North Adelaide, said the recognition came as a surprise.

“It was pretty surreal because I originally wasn’t even expected to get invited to the night,” McAuliffe said.

“I’m really proud to have won it and to share it with Jacob was an honour.”

McAuliffe has only spent two years at PAC as a boarder from Port Augusta but has quickly made his mark in Matt Slade’s First XVIII side.

He dominated big games this season, namely the Reds’ huge Intercol win over St Peter’s.

The young gun credits his work with Slade and the North Adelaide under 16s for his success.

“Being at PAC has been a pretty amazing and winning Intercol recently has probably been one of my biggest footy highlights so far,” McAuliffe said.

“This has been my best year of footy so far, just being part of the PAC program and playing under Sladey – he’s the most passionate coach I’ve ever had.

“I’m also really thankful for the opportunity North Adelaide has given me. I’ve been lucky enough to vice captain the under 16s, which has been awesome.”

McAuliffe feels his game has developed substantially in 2021 and said eventually making the AFL was a goal after this year’s achievements.

“I put a lot of work into my endurance this year and it really paid off. I’m now able to run out games better than anyone and produce for four quarters,” he said.

“My draft year is in two years’ time and it’s now absolutely something I’m aiming for. I believe I can get there if I keep developing and stay consistent.”

As we move along, this now becomes the U16's chatter.

I expect to see a lot more names flooding this thread next year.

I believe there is another Ashcroft in this draft, if he doesn’t select golf over AFL.

Just while here, a name for the 2025 AFL Draft.

Don't know what his game is like but, for Melbourne, Kalani White.
Have seen Kalani play a few times. Tall, athletic with reasonably good hands. Will be interesting to see how he develops.

Seeing something regarding last year's VM-VC U15 game, a name that seemed to stand out was VM player Caleb Nancarrow.

If there are any 2025 names in either squad, be sure to post there.
We pinged Swans asking for names to be provided before game for U19. Here's hoping they provide it for the younger crew as well

Edit: Update from Swans in regard to player details:

"Sorry about last week, tough work without commentary or player/number reference. We will post on our page - match day (with the game links to be posted shortly

Jagga I’ve seen mentioned too.

Maybe higher rated than Nancarrow.
Nancarrow is a 190cm super skinny flanker. Has potential but a long way to go. There are a few kids easily ahead of Caleb at Oakleigh in the tall forwards. Jagga Smith at this stage would be in top 3 kids in the country, probably the best.

I might be misremembering Nancarrow but he looked closer to 180 than 190 but had him as quick and dangerous up forward in the Rachele mould. Jagga Smith has incredible agility he is a hard kid to catch.
