Orazio Fantasia is one of the most exciting players in the AFL who has developed a cult following in the competition since making his debut in 2014.
‘Raz’ grew up idolising Crows legend Andrew McLeod and evoked his childhood hero’s Grand Final success by winning a SANFL Premiership in just his fourth game of senior footy for Norwood in 2013.
Shortly afterwards, he was taken with pick number 55 by Essendon in the 2013 AFL Draft and was a two-time AFL Rising Star Nominee in 2015 and 2016 respectively.
A career-best season in 2017 saw Raz boot 39 goals in 20 games, culminating in his selection for the AFLPA 22 under 22 team after some impressive form in the Bombers’ forward line.
He returned home in 2020 after being traded to Port Adelaide and has currently played 96 games of AFL football, kicking 139 goals in the process.
