1 Playing statistics correct to end of 2001 season.
Troy Luff grew up in the town of Traralgon, Victoria where he lived until high school age. He played junior football with the Cumberland Park Club before shifting with his family to Nelson Bay, New South Wales.
Fortunately, the blonde-haired Luff was retained, where he became best known for his stand-out performances in the 1996 AFL Finals series, culminating in a near best on ground effort in the 1996 AFL Grand Final with 2 crucial goals in the losing side, where he soundly beat Wayne Schwass (although was later beaten by Glenn Archer). Luff also suffered from Epstein Barr virus.
The tall, lean Luff managed to hold down his ruck position during his career, playing a total of 155 games and kicking 85 goals in a career spanning from 1990 to 2001.
