Clean-skilled McPherson had his 2017 campaign ruined by a series of soft tissue injuries after impressing scouts in an AFL Academy match against the VFL in April. Named a joint vice-captain of the SA U18 team this year such are his leadership qualities, McPherson has drawn strong praise from SA coach Brenton Phillips and Eagles team-mate and former Power defender Paul Stewart for his outstanding attitude and commitment to rehab. Uses the ball well off half-back but shows plenty of traits required, including decision-making, to play through the midfield at elite level.
