HAWTHORN has re-signed exciting wingman Bradley Hill until the end of the 2017 season.

Hill was drafted by Hawthorn with pick No.33 in the 2011 NAB AFL Draft and has proven a shrewd pick-up, playing 38 games, including the 2013 premiership.

The 19-year-old said he was delighted to commit his future to the Hawks.

“I feel privileged to play with Hawthorn for another few years," he said.

“Obviously being part of a successful team makes it a lot easier to be happy in a team environment when you’re winning all the time.

“(But) I love my teammates, my coaches; they all make you feel welcome when you first arrive.

“I love playing footy for the club.”

Hill has played every game so far this season for the Hawks and has averaged 23.2 disposals.

He is ranked second at the club for uncontested possessions and inside-50s and ranked fourth for running bounces.

He has also kicked five goals in the opening nine games.
