2009 AFL Under-18 All-Australian team

The 2009 Under-18 All-Australian team was announced following the conclusion of the 2009 AFL Under 18 Championships on 4 July 2009.[2] The sponsored name of the squad is the 2009 NAB AFL Under-18 All-Australian team,[2] due to sponsorship arrangements with the National Australia Bank (NAB). The team was selected by a panel which was chaired by the AFL national talent manager Kevin Sheehan, and consisted of Alan McConnell and Jason McCartney from the AFL, as well as recruiters Matt Rendell, Bryce Lewis, Graham Hadley and Francis Jackson.[2] The championship-winning Western Australia earned the most selections, with nine of the 22 selections,[2] as well as the coach position in the team.[2] Both the Larke Medallists, David Swallow (WA) and Andrew Hooper (Victoria Country), and the Hunter-Harrison Medallist, Dylan McNeil (NSW/ACT), were selected for the squad.[2] Seventeen of the 22 players in the side were eligible for the 2009 AFL Draft,[2] with nine ultimately selected in the first or priority rounds.
