Constable was taken by Geelong with pick no.36 at the 2017 AFL Draft after a break-out top-age season in which he starred across 10 games in Sandringham’s run to the Victorian U18 Boys Grand Final and was selected in the Team of the Year.
The East Sandringham (South Metro Junior FL) product was also named in the AFL U18 All Australian team after representing Vic Metro at the 2017 AFL U18 Championships.
Following a season playing in Geelong’s Hard Yakka / Totally Workwear VFL team in 2018, Constable made his AFL debut in Round 1 this season.
