Taylor Duryea (born 24 April 1991) is an Australian rules footballer who plays for the Hawthorn Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). Duryea's unusual surname is pronounced 'Dew-Ray'.[1]

AFL career[edit]

Hawthorn career (2009–present)[edit]

After Hawthorn won the 2008 premiership the Hawthorn recruitment officer concentrated on the younger players in the 2009 AFL Draft. Duryea was a 5th round selection (Hawthorn) No. 69 overall.

Tried as a small forward when he first arrived at Hawthorn, he has switched to the backline and has carried out a similar playmaking role to Matt Suckling and Brent Guerra. A knee injury to Suckling helped open up an opportunity for Duryea to debut against Collingwood in Round 3 of the 2013 AFL season.[2]

Duryea played 18 games in 2013 and won the "Best first year player" award.[3]

Duryea played 23 of a possible 25 matches in 2014. With the retirement of Brent Guerra at the end of last season, a spot opened up for the young Hawk whose biggest strengths are his rebound and penetrating and accurate kicking. He also delivered two of the toughest bumps for the season.

His form throughout September produced his best football and deservingly earned himself a premiership medal.

On 9 October 2017, Duryea signed a one–year deal to remain at the club until the end of 2018.[4]
