I wanted to start this thread because recent years has seen the emergence of a powerhouse when it comes to producing AFL players in Queensland. Palm Beach Currumbin High School (PBC) on the Gold Coast has had six players (Jesse Joyce, Brad Scheer, Max Spencer, Brayden Crossley, Jacob Heron and Jacob Dawson) drafted to the Suns in the last three years and are currently back-to-back state champions.



They are also expecting this trend to continue in 2018 with the likes of Caleb Graham looking likely to be drafted by the Suns. It's quite impressive and I think the thread will mostly be dedicated to PBC but I'd like to also include other school results in Queensland, particularly state cup results.

I should have mentioned the most notable graduate from PBC is definitely Dayne Beams so it's not as if the school has never produced talented AFL players in the past. Sam Gilbert and Claye Beams also attended PBC.

Do you consider you have a good knowledge of the SEQ jnr.(whether school or community) AF scene? I assume you live there.

Why do you think there are such huge regd. nos. (60,000+) of jnr. & adult females playing AF?
Do you think similar large nos. will, in future years, want to play contact RL or RU?

The NRL dominates TV ratings in Qld., & is the no.1 sport. Are you aware if there are many "traditional" (ie father played, or is a strong follower of the NRL) RL families where some or most of their kids play AF?
Ditto RU families?

Are there many kids playing both AF & soccer?

Iona College took out the South Brisbane regional qualifier this week. A few notable players have come out of Iona like Josh Smith (Collingwood), Tom Hickey (St Kilda) and Tom Bell (Brisbane).

Also, St Andrew's Anglican College took out the Sunshine Coast regional qualifier earlier this week. Gold Coast schools will play in a few weeks.

Just a reminder that the AFLQ Schools Cup prelims + final will be held this Friday. High chance many Suns academy players will be taking part considering three of the the four schools are situated in our zone. Palm Beach Currumbin are gunning for back-to-back-to-back state cups for those who are interested.

Helensvale captured the 2019 senior male AFLQ Schools Cup with a kick after the siren which downed the five-time defending champions PBC. Probably some future AFL players amongst the 'Vale boys.

Great initiative. I'll be coaching a Primary male team next month.
