Levi was selected by Carlton in the 2010 Rookie Draft at pick 44. He was recruited from the Dandenong Stingrays where he showed outstanding promise as a key forward.
Levi’s development has been constant. He is now considered one of the best contested mark players in the AFL. At 26 Levi is entering the prime of his career and will be a big presence down forward for the Blues for years to come.
With another injury free pre-season expect to see even more improvement in Levi’s game in 2017.
Q: Which Junior Clubs did you play for and what was the highlight of your junior career?
A: I played for Beaconsfield through juniors and the highlight was winning a grand final in the under 18’s. I also played for 3 years with the Dandenong Stingrays in the TAC Cup.
Q: Who was your AFL Idol as a kid and why?
A: I liked watching Tony Lockett because he kicked a lot of goals and was the sort of player I wanted to be. My other favourite player was Matthew Lappin. I barracked for Carlton and he always did freakish stuff.
Q: What were you doing on the day you got drafted?
A: I was at home with my family. I was picked in the Rookie Draft so I just watched my name come up on the computer.
Q: What has been the highlight of your AFL career so far?
A: The highlight so far would have to be playing in my AFL debut against Western Bulldogs. We had a win which made it even better.
Q: What are some of your interests outside of football?
A: I like to play Xbox and spend a lot of time with my pet Labrador Cooper.
Q: If you weren’t playing football what would you be doing for a job?
A: After Footy I’m hoping to become a fireman so I’d say I’d be doing that.
