Biography

Graham Johncock moved to the city from Port Lincoln to play in the SANFL for Port Adelaide Magpies as a teenager, yet he was able to join the team he supported when Adelaide secured him with pick No. 67 in the 2000 National Draft. Stiffy, as he was affectionately known, debuted in 2002, slotting into the Club’s best with 25 games that season.

He backed up a solid debut year as Adelaide’s leading goalkicker in 2003 although it was his work as a small defender which really set him apart. His pace and tackling was among the League’s best – few players could escape Johncock once he started to chase them down. A model of consistency and durability in the prime of his career, Johncock finished third in the Malcolm Blight Medal in 2006 and 2011, was named the Members Player of the Year in 2011 and also represented Australia at the 2006 International Rules Series.

The Indigenous star also represented the Dream Team in their clash with Victoria in 2008, and he also played for the Indigenous All-Stars. In the latter stages of his decorated career he moved back to the forward line and after 227 games he finished as one of the Club’s best ever. He received Life Membership in 2011.
