Geelong selected former Prahran Juniors and Sandringham Dragons player Max Holmes for his first senior game v Hawthorn on Easter Monday.

Holmes was Geelong’  first pick in this year’s NAB AFL Draft.

The Cats traded their 2021 first round pick in a straight swap for Richmond’s 20th selection to draft the Sandringham Dragons midfielder.

Standing at 189cm tall, Holmes is a wingman with exciting athletic attributes being the son of dual Olympian and Commonwealth Gold Medallist Lee Naylor, who initially followed in his mother’s footsteps winning Australian Under-18 400 metres hurdles title.

Max joins recent PJFC draftees Abbie McKay (Carlton AFLW), Toby Bedford (Melbourne) and James Rowbottom (Sydney).
