Early life

Scheer was born in Esperance, Western Australia but moved to the Gold Coast at the age of 13.[1] He played his junior football for the Palm Beach Currumbin Lions in the local Gold Coast league and set a club record for the youngest senior debutant at the age of 15.[2] He also joined the Gold Coast Suns' academy in his teenage years while attending Palm Beach Currumbin High School.[3]

He was selected to represent both Queensland and the Allies at the 2016 AFL Under 18 Championships. While playing for the Allies, Scheer kicked the game-winning goal from the boundary to seal a huge victory over the Victorian Country team.[4] Despite spending the early part of his life in Western Australia, Scheer was eligible to be academy drafted by the Gold Coast Suns as he spent the required five years in their academy zone prior to being drafted.[5]

AFL career

Scheer made his AFL debut in the Gold Coast's twenty-five point win against Geelong at Metricon Stadium in round seven of the 2017 season.[6]
