Lang named latest AFL Rising Star

Darcy Lang’s outstanding AFL season has earned him the latest Rising Star nomination.

The 19-year-old onballer is among only six Cats to play every game this year.

Lang had 16 possessions and took three marks in Saturday night’s draw with St Kilda.

The Cats recruited him with their first pick at No.16 in the 2013 national draft.

He made his senior debut in round 13 last year and it was his only AFL game that season.

The Colac native played for the Geelong Falcons in the VFL before joining the Cats.

“We are really impressed with the way he has handled it, both on and off the field,” said Geelong coach Chris Scott.

“Darcy has made a promising start to his career – his enthusiasm and willingness to do whatever it takes to improve has us excited for his future.”

He is Geelong’s third Rising Star nominee this season, after Jackson Thurlow and Cory Gregson.
