Victorian speedster Jack Petruccelle was West Coast's fifth selection in the 2017 draft.
West Coast careerEdit
A former basketballer, Petruccelle represented Vic Metro in the national Under-18 competition before setting the fastest 20-metre sprint time at the draft combine, recording just 2.87 seconds. On being drafted, Petruccelle was described as a versatile player with elite speed and vertical leap.
After a four-goal haul for East Perth, Petruccelle was called up to make his debut in the first Derby to be played at Perth Stadium. Playing as a defensive forward, he had a quiet game but kicked two goals against Port Adelaide the following week to showcase his potential, before being forced out of the side with an ankle injury. He made one further senior appearance later in the year, but his WAFL form dropped away at the tail end of the season.
