VAFA PREMIERSHIP PLAYER TO MAKE AFL DEBUT

Uni Blues 2004 Premiership B&F winner and Carlton rookie list player Ross Young has been elevated to the Carlton senior list and will make his AFL debut against St Kilda at the Telstra Dome tomorrow night.
Young was put on the senior list after Nick Stevens was placed on the long-term injury list for 2007.
He is yet another Uni Blues player to make the big-time joining Hawthorn skipper Richie Vandenberg, who will make his comeback for the Hawks on Saturday. Young's cousin Clinton also plays for the Hawks.
Originally from Donald in country Victoria, Ross also played for University Blues and was recruited to Carlton from the Northern Bullants via the 2007 AFL Rookie Draft. He was Carlton's third selection (number 32 overall) and at 23 years of age he was the first mature age rookie to be selected in the AFL.
Ross is the second Rookie List player to be elevated in 2007, Ryan Jackson was elevated to the senior list two weeks ago replacing Shaun Grigg who is currently on the long term injury list.
Well done Ross.
