Gray impressed in 2006 with TAC Cup club Oakleigh Chargers, kicking 56 goals. He also played for the Victoria Metro’s under 18 side, in a team composed of fellow AFL draftees Bachar Houli, Matthew Kreuzer, Tom Hawkins and David Mackay. Despite this, Gray was not seen as a fancied draft option, due to his unfashionable style of play.
His chances took a hit when he missed a draft camp due to injury. He did, however, attract interest from Port Adelaide after impressing their recruiters.
Head recruiter at the time, Mick Moylan was impressed with his off-field discipline, with Gray maintaining an 8 and a half-hour job.

Port Adelaide legend Robbie Gray has decided to hang up the boots, with his final game coming in the Showdown against Adelaide on Saturday night.
Arguably Port Adelaide’s greatest player, Gray has a long list of individual accolades and was a consistent performer on the big stage.
Known for his elusiveness and creativity, the 34-year-old is a three-time John Cahill Medalist (Port Adelaide best-and-fairest), four-time All Australian (2014, 2015, 2017, 2018) and a five-time Showdown Medalist, with one more opportunity to add to that collection.
Debuting in Round 10 of the 2007 season, the 55th pick in the 2006 AFL Draft came across as a recognised goal kicker, joining a side that was bound for a Grand Final berth the following season.
Gray has won the most Showdown Medals in its history since it was introduced in 2000, leading Sam Jacobs (3), Mark Ricciuto (3), Josh Francou (3) and Travis Boak (3).
Port Adelaide has been a big player in the draft in recent years with its first-round selections and 2021 was no different with the selection of Josh Sinn ($157,800 DEF/MID).
