Who is the youngest player in the AFL?

Who is the youngest player in the AFL?

Jamie Elliott, the Magpies' youngest player on our list, is a developing star in the club who has been hampered by injuries in 2018 and 2019. He has a young, cute, Chris Pine look about him—but does it indicate he'll be captain someday? Four. Luke Hodge was drafted into the AFL at the age of 36 years and 274 days. It's possible Jamie could follow in his footsteps.

In fact, there are three players under the age of 30 on our list who have already led their teams out onto the field: Hayden McLean, Josh Barba, and Daniel Wells. Two of them were co-vice-captains this year (Wells was only appointed after Greg Inglis retired), and all three were leading role models for younger players on the team.

Jamie Elliott had 18 goals from 20 games in 2018 before injury struck again. He remains one of the best prospects for future success at the club, having been named as vice-captain last year when Josh Thomas was injured. If he can stay healthy, Jamie could become the first rookie leader since Luke Hodge in 2008. His birthday is February 2nd, which means he'd be 23 years old when nominated as captain. Our guess is the Pies will hold off until he reaches the age of 25 before appointing him captain for good.

How old is the youngest hockey player in the NCAA?

The rookie is still too young to vote in his home country of Canada, but he's playing among players who, as his coach, Todd Woodcroft, puts it, "are going to have a mortgage next year." The 17-year-old forward is Division I men's hockey's youngest player. He was born on November 23rd, 1995, which means he'll be turning 18 years old before the start of the 2018-2019 season.

In addition to being younger than most of his teammates, the youngest hockey player in the NCAA also has the advantage of having never played a game at the college level. Although there are some very good prospects in the NHL development system who were not able to play this past season because they were still in high school, no one under 18 has ever tried out for an NCAA team.

The oldest player on an NCAA team is 36 years old. He's from North Dakota and plays center for the Fighting Sioux. His name is Ryan McLeod and he's in his sixth season with the team.

The youngest player to try out for an NCAA team was a 16-year-old from Ontario named Garrett Mitchell who was recruited by Boston University. He played two seasons from 2000 to 2002 before moving on to play in Europe.

The oldest player to play an official game in the NCAA is Thomas Van Der Meulen of New Hampshire.

What’s the youngest age to play professional football?

At 16 years and 30 days old, Liverpool's Harvey Elliot became the Premier League's youngest player in history in May 2019. Luka Romero of RCD Mallorca surpassed La Liga's 80-year record by making his debut at the age of 15 years and 219 days, little over a year after Elliot. The two players shared duties as Liverpool's youth team coaches during their breaks from playing football.

Harvey Elliot had already played for Liverpool's youth teams for three seasons before making his first-team debut in the UEFA Champions League group stage match against Sevilla on 9 September 2016. He came on as a 71st-minute substitute for Jordan Henderson and helped his team win 3-1. Two months later, on 21 November, he made his league debut in a 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane. He replaced Roberto Firmino late in the game as a substitute and scored the only goal of the game.

Elliot continued to score goals and attract attention from top clubs around Europe. In January 2017, he signed a new contract with Liverpool that will keep him at the club until 2020. A few weeks later, on 13 February, he scored his second career hat trick in a 4-1 win over Hapoel Be'er Sheva in an Israeli Cup quarter-final match. At the end of the season, Elliot was awarded the PFA Young Player of the Year award.

Who holds the record as the youngest NSW State of Origin player?

Fittler remains the youngest State of Origin player in NSW (18 years, 114 days). Fittler led the Roosters to the 2002 championship and two grand final appearances in 2003 and 2004, and he also captained NSW 14 times, winning eight of them. He captained Australia in 20 Tests, winning 17 of them.

However, Fittler's record may not last long. Mitchell Pearce is coming into his own as one of the best young players in the game and he will no doubt be looking to break into an already strong Blues team when he makes his debut in 2017. If Pearce continues at this rate, he could well be playing State of Origin before he knows it!

The youngest player ever selected in State of Origin was Greg Inglis (age 19 years, 304 days) who played three matches for Queensland in 2008. He went on to play 100 NRL games, scoring 56 goals.
