Wanganeen was born in Port Lincoln, South Australia and is the eldest of four children.
Drafted via the 2011 Rookie Draft, he was unable to find consistency as a small forward in his early career but a late switch to the backline he found his niche and showed natural ability to read the play and then set up teammates with his disposal.
Wanganeen spent the maximum three years on Hawthorn’s rookie list, but had to be delisted at the end of last season and then re-selected via the Rookie Draft at number 33.
He spent 2013 developing in the VFL and was rewarded with a Box Hill premiership. His development as a player was noticed by the Hawthorn coaching staff. After an impressive pre-season, he was upgraded onto the primary list in place of the injured Brendan Whitecross. He made his AFL debut in Launceston, Tasmania against Brisbane Lions.
