Already a tough, talented midfielder, Parker soared to new heights in 2014.

Playing every game, he averaged 26 disposals, six tackles and four marks, all comfortably career highs, and was named in the All-Australian squad.

An excellent contested mark, he kicked 25 goals and topped it all off by beating Josh Kennedy and Lance Franklin to claim his first Club Champion award, all at the age of 21.

Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Sydney) No. 40 overall.
