Biography

David Mackay (born 25 July 1988) is a professional Australian rules football player who plays for the Adelaide Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). He was drafted by the club at pick 48 in the 2006 National Draft.

Pre-AFL career

Mackay came from Melbourne side, Oakleigh Chargers and appeared in the 2006 Victorian U/18 Metro side where he was inspirational in the grand final. He attended Trinity Grammar School, noted for producing star footballers including Wayne Schwass and Luke Power, and was House Captain of the school's Hindley House. Fellow 2006 draft pick Todd Goldstein was vice-captain of the same house.

AFL career

After a 2007 ruined by a recurring hamstring injury, Mackay made his debut for Adelaide in round 1 of the 2008 AFL season, in a loss to the Western Bulldogs. He played 19 games for the season, missing only four, and kicked his first AFL goal in round 17 against Sydney. He again was a regular for the side in 2009, playing 20 matches, and by this early stage of his career was rated a vital part of the Crows' young midfield. He played 16 games in 2010.

In the first round of 2011, Mackay suffered a shoulder injury and underwent surgery that kept him out for three months. He returned late in the season and showed good form, impressing both with his offensive running and defensive pressure. Mackay benefited from improved strength and durability the next season, playing 23 games and averaging 17 possessions and four tackles per game, while playing both in the midfield and across half-back. At the end of the year he signed a three-year contract extension.

Much like the team as a whole, Mackay struggled for consistency in 2013. He recaptured his best form in 2014, playing 19 games, averaging 18 disposals and kicking a personal best 11 goals for the year. He signed a four-year contract extension midway through the season.

Mackay started 2015 in good form, laying a career-best 13 tackles along with 23 disposals against Melbourne in wet conditions in round 3. However, his old inconsistency resurfaced resulting in him being dropped late in the year. He returned to the side to play in Adelaide's two finals.
