Portrait of Luke Ball

Luke Ball

Luke Ball has the rare distinction of being both a St Kilda Football Club captain and a Collingwood Premiership player. Indeed he is one of the only players in AFL history to have played in three consecutive Grand Finals with two different clubs, leaving the Saints at the end of 2009 in the era of football professionalism to pursue a fresh start with the more successful Magpie unit.

Luke’s only job since leaving school is that of professional footballer. He is the current president of the AFL Players Association and he and his newlywed wife expect their first child early next year.
