The honest defender has performed admirably against a number of the opposition’s key powerhouses when given the opportunity at senior level. After a late start to his AFL career Markovic is hitting his stride and becoming more confident in his abilities. After spending a year on Hawthorn’s rookie list, the 24 year old was given another opportunity through the 2009 AFL National Draft (pick 63 overall). 


 

Season by Season

Lukas Markovic added another nine games to his career tally this season although an ongoing hamstring complaint restricted his game time. Markovic achieved a number of statistical highs throughout the course of the year including a career high nine marks, 16 disposals and 12 one percenters. He was the equal highest rated player at the Club in average one percenters and placed sixth in disposal efficiency at the Bulldogs.

Season by Season

The athletic key defender finally made his AFL debut at 24 in the opening round against Essendon. He was asked to take on several defensive roles and battled manfully in his 16 games, finishing top 10 in the best and fairest. Signed a contract extension in November and is poised to take the next step as he becomes more confident in his role within the team.
