BLUESEUM - History of the Carlton Football Club (Cached)



Carlton selected former Gold Coast Suns player Jarrod Garlett with pick 78, the final pick in the 2017 NAB AFL National Draft. Originally hailing from South Fremantle in Western Australia, Garlett was drafted to the Suns with their first-round selection in 2014 at number 15. After playing 17 games and kicking 10 goals for Gold Coast, Garlett made the tough decision last year to return home and give up his AFL contract to be with his terminally ill brother. Since returning to WA his brother has thankfully made a miraculous recovery, stunning every doctor in the process. Garlett believes everything happens for a reason, with the pacy midfielder now focused on living his dream to once again play AFL. With pace, toughness and damaging skills in his bag of tricks, Carlton’s GM of List Management and Strategy Stephen Silvagni said Garlett will provide plenty of run and dash for the Blues. “Jarrod has managed to play some great footy in the WAFL after leaving the AFL system for family reasons,” Silvagni said. “He has great skills on both sides and has elite speed – so he’ll be a very valuable player.”
