2017 Draft Profile - Brayden Ainsworth

 
Draft profiles continue in the lead up to Friday’s draft with Subiaco’s 2017 All Australian Under 18 Brayden Ainsworth under the draft microscope.
 
At the start of the year, Brayden Ainsworth made the trip from Esperance to Perth in order to realise his dream of playing senior football at the highest level.
 
He was a big name player back in Esperance but he knew if he was going to reach his football potential he needed to make the move to Perth.
 
Supported by his family as well as the Subiaco Football Club and coaches Beau Wardman and Jarrad Schofield, Ainsworth made an almost seamless transition to Perth and into colts football.
 
His early form in the Colts was too good to ignore and he was selected in the WA U18s State Academy where he shone. He was the number one clearance player in the National Championships and number two for contested possessions. His strong performances saw him selected in the U18s All-Australian team as the centreman.
 
After the Championships Ainsworth progressed into Subiaco’s senior squads and played the remainder of the season with the Subiaco Reserves. He was a key player in the Subiaco Reserves finals, averaging 17 possessions, and six tackles across the four games. Ainsworth was a key catalyst in the Reserves’ Premiership victory over South Fremantle, when he gathered 12 possessions, laid eight tackles and kicked a goal in wet conditions.
 
He also showcased his enormous potential with an outstanding performance in the U18s All Stars Game, which was the curtain raiser to this year’s AFL Grand Final. He finished with 20 possessions (10 contested), seven clearances and five tackles, to be amongst the best for Team Enright.
 
WHAT THE COACH SAYS:
Extremely motivated and disciplined young man. His work ethic off field has been reflected in his consistency on-field. Has an elite ability to find the footy mixing his inside and outside roles. Shown he can push forward and find the goals making him an impressive prospect at the next level. A loyal young man and a great team player.
 
WHAT THE TALENT MANAGER SAYS:
It has been a big 12 months for Brayden as he has made a successful transition from country footy to have a real impact at WAFL level in both colts and reserves. He received a lot of praise and recognition this year, but it was the hard work he put in behind the scenes that was the backbone of his recognition.
 
WHAT THE TEAMMATE SAYS:
Brayden has a brilliant work ethic and hunger for success. He is a super humble guy who actively seeks out senior players for advice or to test himself. With ball in hand he has the ability to make the game slow down around him and allow new options to open up.
 
WHAT THE SCOUT SAYS:
What separates Ainsworth from the other midfielders are his clean hands, strong overhead marking ability, dominant clearance work, composure even when under duress, elite link-up play, damaging play-making abilities and his capacity to have an impact on the scoreboard.
 
WHAT BRAYDEN SAYS:
Jarrad Schofield helped get me to Subi and he and Beau Wardman have really worked with me to improve my game. I think they have helped prepare me to make the next step. Moving interstate wouldn’t phase me. Anywhere you the opportunity go I would take it with open arms.
