A 207cm ruckman, the tallest ever to go through the AFL draft camp, Gawn missed the Under 18 championship due to a knee reconstruction but was snapped up by the Demons in the hope that his size and mobility would make him a weapon similar to Fremantle's Aaron Sandilands.

Gawn returned to football with Casey late in the VFL season but in his third game back suffered another knee injury, not as serious this time, and saw his season ended prematurely.

Debuting midway through the 2011 season in the absence of an injured Mark Jamar - becoming the fourth tallest AFL player on record - Gawn impressed in four matches but with Jamar returning he found it hard to break into the side again and played out the year with Casey.

Gawn suffered a knee injury during a training session in December 2011 and was forced to undergo surgery which kept him out of the 2012 season. He returned in 2013 with some encouraging performances, but was often used primarily as a forward.

A hamstring injury delayed Gawn's 2014 campaign, and when he returned he again played as an understudy to Jamar or as a forward. His season ended prematurely in the second quarter of the Round 23 match against North Melbourne when he suffered another knee injury.

Gawn won the 2014 Casey Scorpions best and fairest award.
