Originally from Wagga Wagga in NSW, Himmelberg moved to Queensland as a teenager where he played NEAFL footy for Redland and represented the Allies in the 2016 Under-18s. A broken leg stopped him from attending the AFL draft combine, but that didn’t stop the Crows from swooping with pick No. 51. Himmelberg developed his game in the SANFL in 2017 and much of 2018 where he shined in the forward line. His form earned him a late AFL debut in Round 23. He continued to gain experience at senior level in 2019, kicking eight goals in his seven AFL games.
