English finished 2017 having played two senior games, and 15 VFL games where he averaged 13 disposals, four marks and 18 hitouts per contest.
The West Australian added a further seven senior games to his resume in 2018, before a breakout season in 2019.
English played 20 AFL matches in his third year as a Bulldog after seven games across his first two seasons, impressing with his competitiveness in the air, mobility around the ground and follow-up efforts around the ball.
