He has the kind of face would strike fear through the hearts of defenders.... sorta (if you squint and then quickly sneak a peak at Barry Hall).
Gunston (who is still listed as only 86Kg) springs to mind - similar size, athletic, good kick for goal. Something to work with.Plenty to work with here. Clearly a long term project at 75kgs.
Jackson ROSS (info from AFL draft central)
Outside Midfielder/Medium Forward (Haileybury College/Eastern Ranges)

Scouting notes: Booted 29 goals playing as a centre half forward and on the wing for Haileybury College in the APS school competition. Comes from an elite tennis background and is still quite raw in football terms. Has a long kick and is able to use it on either side of his body. Very athletic and is a player with plenty of development left.
Strengths: Upside, mobility/versatile, kicking, scoreboard impact
Improvements: Consistency, tackling, reading the game
Combine test results: 20m Sprint (secs) – 3.09 | Agility (secs) – 8.46 | Yo-Yo Test (level) – 20.8
Got a face that’d strike fear into parents, but also be welcomed into the church...
No worries with the 'go home' factor with Jackson from around Belgrave and Dylan from Rowville. Hopefully, Dingley won't be a problem in the future.One of 9 Eastern Ranges to join the AFL.
I like the fact he'll continue to train alongside Dylan Moore like it's a rite of passage.
Suddenly, your Hawks go from 2 Ranges guys to 4.
Looking at his highlights, I cant see any resemblance to Sicily at all? Sicily's game is based on his contested marking. Ross reminds me more of Gunston when he was first selected by Adelaide, skinny, raw but worth potential.he seems like a poor-mans Sicily without the aggro... well i wish him all the best
Sicily? I guess they’ll wear similar jumpers on game day, but that’s about where the similarities end from what I see.he seems like a poor-mans Sicily without the aggro... well i wish him all the best
Players that a willing to go the extra mile are those usually turn out to be solid players at the very leastApart from his athletic ability he has discipline. Having committed to a tennis career and nearly making it shows he is prepared to do the hard yards to make it happen. He excites me the most of the new recruits.
So you're saying that you're Jackson Ross?Conversation with my chiropractor this morning...
One of my client's was drafted to Hawthorn yesterday.
Oh right, cool. We only picked 3, Worpel, Moore and some other kid, I can't remember his name...
That's the one!
As long as he doesn’t do a Gunston & go to that sh!t club Hawth.... oh waitCan see upside in Jackson Ross.
Like many others reminds me of a young Gunners.
Jackson should shadow & stick to Jack Gunston and he'll show the ropes.
Gunners is a huge tennis fan and from same school, a mini Gunston is fine but may take time.
A great late pick up by the hawks. Good luck Jackson Ross.
