Woodville-West Torrens’ Zac Schwarz has underlined his athleticism with an outstanding allround display at SANFL’s U18 Centre of Excellence testing.

Schwarz, who is originally from Port Districts FC, finished in the top ten of all five tests recorded, including a League best 84cm leap in the Standing Vertical Jump.

His versatility was also highlighted in the running events, placing equal third in the 20m sprint with a time of 2.90 seconds while also registering equal second place in the Yo Yo Test with a score of Level 21.6.

This was equalled by West Adelaide’s Joel Parker, who placed inside the top 10 of four events as he also showed off his extreme versatility with a time of 2.90 seconds in the 20m Sprint.

Panthers livewire Benny Barrett, who won the inaugural SANFL U16 Best and Fairest Medal in 2022, was the fastest tested with a blistering 2.87 seconds while Central’s Beau Ryan displayed his aerobic capacity with 21.8 to lead the Yo Yo Test results.

West’s Ky Burgoyne, the son of Port Adelaide and Hawthorn great Shaun Burgoyne, was second in the 20m Sprint with 2.88 seconds while South’s Scott Delean, the younger brother of Fremantle draftee Jack, finished equal second in the Yo Yo Test.

Glenelg’s Camporeale twins – Ben and Lucas – were among the best in the Vertical Jump tests, with Ben leading the way in the Running Vertical Jump from the left foot, landing a leap of 95cm.
