Craig Jacotine played reserve grade football for Carlton in 2001.
Jacotine was originally recruited from Springvale via TAC Cup team the Dandenong Stingrays.
Jacotine was also used as a top-up player for Hawthorn and Collingwood reserves in 1998. Jacotine was an unlucky player considering his credentials. He wasn't picked up until no.41 in the 1998 AFL Draft, when people thought he would have been picked up at a younger age the year before. He captained the Vic Metro U18 side in 1998, and played at U18 level in the TAC Cup for 2 seasons with Dandenong. He made his debut with Collingwood on ANZAC Day against the Bombers in the traditional blockbuster. He started off well in his debut season, and was regarded early on as a future leader by captain Nathan Buckley. His form went down-hill in 1999 after stringing most of the season together since his first game. In 2000 he would only play 2 games, spending most of his season at Williamstown after he was outed by injury. He was delisted at the end of the year.
At the end of 2002 Jacotine headed to VFL club Frankston, he did pre-season with the Dolphins. But uncertainy about the Dolphins future caused Jacotine to head to rival VFL club Sandringham.
He didn't play a senior game for Carlton.
