North Adelaide’s Chloe Scheer says her passion to play footy is behind her emergence as one of South Australia’s best young talents.
The Round 2 Powerade Star Search nominee was a dynamic contributor for the Roosters last Saturday night, kicking two early goals to help her team set up victory against Glenelg at City Mazda Stadium.
Aged just 17, Scheer also finished the match with 17 disposals, four marks and three tackles to join Norwood’s Nikki Gore in being recognised with a Powerade Star Search nomination.
Speaking on SANFL Radio, Scheer said her father’s influence and guidance had played a strong role in her rapid development after scooping the pool of individual SAWFL awards last year.
In a remarkable performance, Scheer – despite only being 16 – won the U18 Best-and-Fairest medal as well as the senior award, the Dutschke Medal which is the SAWFL’s equivalent of the Magarey Medal.
Measuring in at 165cm and 67kg, the Year 12 student describes herself as a ball-winning midfielder who also plays across half-forward.
