Mark LeCras has been selected with pick number 37 after an impressive 2004 – which included some fine performances at the under-18 championships. His steady progression through the WAFL ranks on his return from the National Championships showed he had what it takes.

Pick 37
Mark LeCras

Club: Whitfords/West Perth
DOB: 30 August 1986 Hgt: 183cm Wgt: 74kg
Position: Half Forward Flank/Midfield
Natural Foot: Right
All-Australian 2004
Vice-Captain of the 2004 WAFL Colts Team of the Year
Western Australia U18 Championship 2003, 2004
Half Forward Flank in WAFL Colts Team of the Year 2003, 2004

LeCras is a half-forward flanker come midfielder who is an excellent mark for his size. He is a good mover and knows how to find the football when he plays on the ball. He is creative and strong overhead and very agile and can turn his opponent well. He has clean hands and is creative with his disposal and very consistent.

It’s not surprising LeCras has already come this far in football. His father Peter was a prominent player for East Fremantle and his brother Brent was picked up in the 2003 National draft by the Kangaroos. LeCras began playing at the Northern coastal town of Cervantes where he grew up. He then Played for two years at Quinns and two years at Whitfords before returning to Cervantes.

His efforts in the agility test at the Draft Camp placed him in the top seven per cent, after he ran a time of 8.18 seconds. His hard work for West Perth after his return from the U18 Championships showed that he was ready to take the next step in his career as an AFL footballer when he broke into the West Perth senior side late in the season to play 3 games.

The team at welcome Mark to the nest and hope he enjoys a long and illustrious career with the Eagles.
