Career highlights

Scott Camporeale (born 11 August 1975) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with the Carlton and Essendon clubs in the Australian Football League. Camporeale is the current interim coach of the Adelaide Crows.

Football career[edit]

Originally from South Australian National Football League (SANFL) club Woodville-West Torrens Eagles, Camporeale was drafted by Carlton with draft pick number 15 in the 1994 AFL Draft. He quickly established himself as a quality running midfielder for Carlton and was second in the 1995 AFL Rising Star Award behind Nick Holland of Hawthorn. His speed was an important part of Carlton's 1995 premiership winning side.

In 2000, Camporeale won Carlton's best and fairest award, the Robert Reynolds Trophy, as well as gaining All-Australian selection.

At the end of the 2005 season, Camporeale left Carlton, following his desire for a three-year contract, when Carlton would only offer a two-year contract.[1] Carlton tried to make it difficult for him to leave, so Camporeale nominated for the 2006 Pre-season Draft. Essendon drafted Camporeale with draft pick number four in the pre-season draft. [2]

Camporeale debuted with Essendon in Round One, 2006. His career came to an end when he suffered a right knee injury in Round 21 2007. It occurred when he changed direction to tackle an opponent resulting with his knee bending and twisting the wrong way. He had successful ACL surgery on the knee but at 32 he opted to retire.[3] He played 19 games for the Bombers in two seasons.

Coaching career[edit]

Camporeale was an assistant coach at Essendon from 2007 to 2010. In October 2010, he joined the Adelaide Crows as a midfield coach replacing Todd Viney.

Following the death of Phil Walsh, Camporeale was appointed interim coach to the end of the 2015 season.[4]

Personal life[edit]

Camporeale is an old scholar of St Michael's College, Adelaide.
