Who is eligible: In addition to the son of any player who reached 100 games for the club, West Coast has been eligible to recruit a player if their father played 150 senior WAFL games for Claremont, East Perth, West Perth or Subiaco before 1987.

On the horizon: Zac Mainwaring, Sunny Kemp and Ben Evans – the sons of premiership heroes Chris Mainwaring, Dean Kemp and Tony Evans – are aged 16 and above, have been involved in WAFL programs and have gone through the Eagles' second generation academy, which is more about connecting past players and their children (daughters are now also involved) with the club rather than guiding them into AFL football. Two of Chris Waterman's sons, Alec and NAB AFL Rising Star nominee Jake Waterman, were drafted after being part of the academy.

Watch list: There is a long list of boys involved in the Eagles academy, including Noah Braun, 10, Drew Banfield's eldest son Bailey, who won't be draft age until the early 2020s, plus brothers Charlie and Harper. Club great Glen Jakovich is father to Bryce, who turns 14 this year, while Levi Lamb is the same age. Jack Turnbull, the son of former ruckman Ryan, is about to turn 13, while ex-skipper Darren Glass' son, Nixon, plus Andrew Embley's boys, Van and Lux, and Adam Selwood's offspring, Lenny, could eventually be involved. But no doubt the biggest talking point over coming years will be after the Eagles invite Chris Judd's eldest son Oscar, plus twins Tom and Darcy, who would also qualify as Carlton father-son prospects, to join the academy. Current players Jack Darling and Chris Masten also have sons, while free agent Jeremy McGovern is expecting his first boy soon.

This doesn’t have every potential F/S listed. They forgot Wirra’s lads among others. This also must have been released before Boots and Schoey’s Sons were born. They also forgot Rex LeCras.

Jesus. What is it with our lads and odd names. Rex, Tex, Nash, Van, Lux, Nixon, Bobby etc....

Zac Mainwaring wants nothing to do with us apparently, even if he makes it as an AFL footballer I think he'd hit the draft.

Damn it, my uncle who I've met once only played 98 for East Perth.

Almost could've snuck in as a F/S, sorry fellas.
