Year 12 student Riley Collier-Dawkins is drafted to Richmond

It’s been a big week at Salesian, with our Year 12 student Riley Collier-Dawkins picked by Richmond last night in the 2018 AFL draft!

Standing tall at 193cm, Richmond FC recognised Riley as a “wonderful addition to our midfield mix, bringing a unique skill-set of size and power.” Riley cemented his status as a young up-and-comer to watch at the recent TAC Cup Grand Final, having excelled consistently in the Oakleigh Chargers’ finals season. Riley reflected at the draft, “as long as you apply yourself, you can do anything. I grew up with great morals and got taught great lessons.”
