Harry Sheezel Parents Lana and Dean Sheezel
Harry Sheezel parents Dean and Lana Sheezel are the proudest individual after their son got drafted into the AFL.
The Sheezel couple was present when North Melbourne's selection of their son for the 2023 AFL season was announced. They have served as Harry's inspiration and motivators throughout his entire life, and they are the ones that paved the way for him to enjoy the success he has now.
They have been pushing their young lad to achieve his dream and turn his passion into a well-earning and honorable profession. They supported his vision and sent him to several football academies while he was growing up.
Earlier this year, the young superstar had a taste of what it was like to be at an AFL club when he trained with St Kilda earlier this year during his stint with the AFL Academy.
He participated in drills, spoke with football greats like Jack Steele and Rowan Marshall, and departed with a renewed desire to play at the top level. Sheezel's selection for the AFL was expected, given that he struck 49 goals in all competitions this season, including four versus Oakleigh in the NAB League Grand Final and six against Tasmania earlier in the year.
He is a challenging opponent for defenders because he can take a strong grab inside the 50 and produce something from nothing after gaining the ball at ground level.
