Charlie Cameron: AFL player

Charlie's Deadly Choice: Being a role model for the community.

Charlie is a proud Lardil and Waanyi man, born in Mount Isa, Queensland who attended primary school in Mornington Island, Queensland before moving to Brisbane.

As a schoolboy he played baseball, rugby union and rugby league at high levels. He also played several games of Australian rules football and spent six months in the Brisbane Lions Talent Academy before quitting football to focus on rugby.

At the end of 2011, Charlie moved with his family to Newman, Western Australia and was talked into playing for the local football team, the Newman Saints. He began playing club football and impressed so much that, towards the end of the season, he was invited to play for the Swan Districts Football Club and played three colt’s games. He then earned a spot in the senior team for the first round of the 2013 WAFL season and went on to be picked up by the Adelaide Crows in the rookie draft. Charlie spent four years in Adelaide after the Crows selected him and then joined the Lions during the 2017 Trade period.

Charlie is an electrifying midfielder/forward with lightning speed and the ability to kick miraculous goals.
