Former NBL Basketballer Luke Jamieson has dusted off his football boots and signed with the Canberra Demons for the 2019 and 2020 NEAFL seasons.
The 24-year-old spent four years with NBL franchise the Illawarra Hawks before joining the Mount Gambier Pioneers in the South East Australian Basketball League for the 2018 season.
At 199 centimetres tall, Jamieson will play predominately as a key forward or ruck and has great agility for his size.
General Manager of Football Shaun Young says Jamieson shows great potential heading into his first NEAFL campaign.
“We’re excited that Luke has made a decision to pursue his football with us next season," Young said.
"Luke has had interest across the AFL industry for his playing services due to his potential
talent, and we look forward to what Luke can bring to Canberra in 2019 and 2020.”
Welcome to the club Luke!
