Career highlights

Jarrad Schofield (born 30 January 1975) was a premiership winning player who played for the West Coast Eagles, Port Adelaide and Fremantle.

AFL career[edit]

West Coast career (1993–1998)[edit]

Schofield made his debut in 1993 with the West Coast Eagles. It was not until 1996, when he won a Rising Star nomination, that he became an important player at the club. He was traded to Port Adelaide at the end of the 1998 season for Scott Cummings.

Port Adelaide career (1999–2004)[edit]

He switched to Port Adelaide in 1999 and was noted for being a useful running outside midfielder, used as a "link man" in the midfield. In Round 5, 2002, he won the Showdown Medal.[1] In 2004, Schofield enjoyed an outstanding season where he amassed a high amount of disposals for Port, and topped it off by being a part of Port's premiership side.

Fremantle career (2005–2006)[edit]

In 2005 Schofield went back home to Perth, this time playing with the Fremantle Football Club. In 2005 he struggled to get on the field with numerous injuries and had what was considered a disappointing season which was much different from the heights he reached in 2004.

Schofield had shown further indications that he may be nearing the twilight of his career, particularly when in the 2006 NAB Cup semi-final against Geelong, he had a poor game where he dropped a simple chest mark and then proceeded to concede a number of free kicks. At 31 years of age Schofield's future at the club was in doubt.

He announced prior to Round 22 that he would retire from AFL football at the end of the 2006 season, with injury restricting him to just two matches up to that point. [1]

WAFL career[edit]

Subiaco career (2007–2008)[edit]

In 2007 Schofield went on to play for Subiaco in the WAFL winning 2 premierships in 2007 and 2008.

Coaching career (2009–2010)[edit]

At the end of the 2008 season he retired from the WAFL and was appointed coach of the successful Subiaco Colts which ended at the end of the 2010 season.
