About Patrick Cripps:

Cripps’ junior football career began in Northampton. Later, he moved to Perth to play for WAFL’s East Fremantle Football club. Additionally, he served as vice-captain of Western Australia at the 2013 AFL U-18 Championships. There he won a place on the All-Australian team for the tournament.

During the 2013 AFL National Draft, Carlton Football Club recruited Cripps. The next year, he made his professional debut in the Match against Melbourne during round 4. Unfortunately, he could only participate in one more match that season. This was due to facing multiple injuries.

Cripps established himself as a top inside midfielder in his second season. He placed 8th in the league for disputed possessions and 11th for clearances and gained praise for his aggressive use of handball. Furthermore, he ranked 2nd in the 2015 AFL Rising Star award. He also won the John Nicholls Medal as Carlton’s best and fairest to become the award’s second-youngest winner in history.

At the beginning of the 2018 season, Patrick Cripps and Sam Docherty were announced joint vice-captains of Carlton. He had a fantastic season in 2018. During this, he collected his second Carlton Best and Fairest award, All Australian honors, and came in second in AFL MVP voting. Cripps became the leading disputed possession winner in a single season with nearly 29 touches per game.

Cripps had a chronic back problem during the 2020 and 2021 seasons. This significantly affected his performance. But he made a swift comeback this year. Over the first three rounds, he received 25 of a possible 30 votes for AFLCA MVP. Unfortunately, he injured his hamstring again in round four against the Gold Coast Suns. He currently has 26 votes for the 2022 Brownlow Medal.
