The Carlton Football Club says his ability to win the ball is matched by a fearlessness at the contest, gathering almost 12 contested possessions a game.
18 year old Sam says he could not be happier to be living his AFL dream at the Blues.
“The Club has welcomed me with open arms from the moment I got drafted,” Walsh said.
“The coaches, staff and entire club provide us with everything we need to get the very best out of ourselves, which I have loved. It just motivates you to get better every day.
“What struck me straight away was the elite standards our Club has in place, driven by ‘Crippa’ and ‘Doc’. That has us focused as a young group to fast-track our development and achieve success together.”
