Biography

Tyson Stenglein arrived at West Lakes as a defender and departed six years later as one the AFL’s best midfield stoppers. Captain of the WA under-18 side in 1998, he played for Subiaco in the WAFL in defence. A second-round draft selection, he had a mature body and at 191cm tall, the size to develop quickly into an AFL player.

He made his debut against West Coast in his first year with the Crows and played four games that season. Stenglein became a regular in 2000 and rarely missed a match on the way to reaching the 100-game milestone late in 2004. Stenglein finished third in the Club Champion award in 2002 and then runner-up to Mark Ricciuto in 2004 after a season of shutting down some of the competition’s most dangerous midfielders.

Stenglein left Adelaide for West Coast in 2005, traded for the No. 12 pick that was used to claim Scott Thompson from Melbourne. He played every game in their 2006 premiership season and ultimately notched his 200th AFL game with the Eagles in 2009.
