Kelly tested in state combines in 2012 and 2013 but was overlooked on both occasions, and is now playing his best football after following a training program designed to impress AFL scouts.

The goal-kicking midfielder is the best player in the WAFL according to Hawthorn premiership-player Xavier Ellis, and has reportedly drawn interest from both Perth-based clubs in West Coast and Fremantle, as well as Carlton, Brisbane and North Melbourne.
