Sumner was drafted to Sydney with the 54th selection in the 2009 AFL Draft.[1] He was recruited from Woodville-West Torrens in the South Australian National Football League.[2] He played in the opening round of the 2011 AFL season,[3] but was delisted at the end of the season without playing another AFL game. He returned to South Australian and continued to play for Woodville-West Torrens until he signed with Sturt Football Club for the 2017 SANFL season.[4]
