After a breakout 2014 season defender Jack Hombsch has signed a contract extension that will see him remain at the Port Adelaide club until the end of 2017.
Hombsch played 24 games last season taking his career tally to 39.
Senior coach Ken Hinkley said Hombsch is an outstanding young man who has taken his game to a new level in the past 12 months.
“Jack’s form really reflects that of the team, he’s worked really hard on his game and his confidence has grown from there,” Hinkley said.
“He can play on talls or mid-size forwards and become an integral part of our backline structure.”
Originally from Roxby Downs in the state’s Far North, Hombsch was recruited from Greater Western Sydney at the end of the 2012 season.
Since then Hombsch has become an important part of the Power backline, with sound judgement and intercept marking hallmarks of his game.
The 21-year-old played all three of the Power’s finals in 2014 and missed only one game for the season, due to injury.
Hombsch also won the John McCarthy Award in 2013 for service to the community.
