Former Rising Star to return to Premiership Footy
18 Nov, 2019
Former Rising Star award winner Ben Armstrong will return to the AFL New Zealand Premiership after a year off to focus on study.
Originally hailing from the small Northland town of Moerewa, Ben is now studying at AUT University in Auckland.
His pace on the footy field means he can swing the momentum of the game in the blink of an eye.
Ben has been involved in two New Zealand Under 18 tours to Melbourne and has the goal of one day playing for the National Senior side.
The former Bay of Islands College student made a name for himself in 2014 when he broke the Australasian record of 7.64 seconds for the agility test at the AFL New Zealand National combine.
