The medium forward may have been given a late call up to the AFL ranks but Dickson made an immediate impact at the Bulldogs. Dickson plays taller than he is, often out marking his opponents in one-on-one situations and adds a different dynamic as a small forward. Dickson joined the Bulldogs with the Club’s from the Bendigo Bombers via a third round selection in the 2011 NAB AFL Draft (pick 57 overall).
Dickson kicked a career-high 50 goals in season 2015, from 23 games, becoming renowned as a sharp-shooter around goal. Playing 22 games and kicking 40 goals in season 2016, Dickson was an integral part of the club's AFL Premiership win, kicking three goals in the season decider.
After injuries derailed his 2017 and 2018 campaigns, Tory Dickson was a consistent contributor for the Bulldogs in 2019.
The 31-year-old played 17 matches – as many as he played across 2017 and 2018 combined – including his 100th AFL match against Collingwood in round four.
Dickson was again one of the Bulldogs’ best finishers, slotting 24.8 for season 2019.
He will remain a Bulldog in 2020 after committing to a one-year extension post-season.
