Biography

As a kid, growing up in Ballarat, Brad Crouch played football and cricket with younger brother Matt. A handy fast bowler on the cricket field, Crouch impressed during the Under-16 National Championships and was an Under-18 All Australian.

At only 17 he was drafted by the Crows with pick No. 2 in the 2011 ‘mini draft’. Crouch played at West Adelaide before making his AFL debut in Round Two, 2013. He capped off his season as the AFL Rising Star runner-up. In 2017 Crouch elevated his game and averaged 28 disposals across 20 games. Injury sidelined the midfielder for 2018 before he bounced back with a Malcolm Blight Medal year.

In 2018 he averaged 30 touches, played all 22 games, kicked a career-high 11 goals and received 14 Brownlow votes in a campaign which saw him reach his full potential. Adelaide missed finals but with Crouch’s consistency he provided a shining light over the Club’s best talent.  He was injured early in 2020 but returned to have a strong influence in the mid-field as the team was rebuilding. At the end of the season he used his restricted free agent status to transfer to St Kilda.
