Originally from Rowville, Crozier played junior football for the Eastern Ranges in the TAC Cup. He performed well at the AFL pre-draft testing, recording the second highest standing leap and elite-level sprinting and endurance results.[1] He represented Victoria Metro at the 2011 AFL Under 18 Championships where he took a spectacular high mark against Western Australia.[2]

He was drafted by Fremantle with their second selection, 20th overall, in the 2011 AFL Draft.[3]

A high leaping left-footed forward, Crozier was selected to play his first games for Fremantle in round 10 of the 2012 AFL season against the Adelaide Football Club after performing well in the West Australian Football League (WAFL) for East Perth.[4]

At the conclusion of the 2017 AFL season, Crozier was traded to the Western Bulldogs.[5]

His father is Sri Lankan.[6][7]
