Jason Johannisen (born 8 November 1992) is a professional Australian rules footballer who plays for the Western Bulldogs in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Early life[edit]

Johannisen was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and moved to Perth, Western Australia with his family when he was eight years old.[1]

He went to Willetton Senior High School.

Career[edit]

Johanissen was recruited by the Western Bulldogs in the 2011 Rookie Draft, with pick #39, and made his debut in Round 19 of the 2012 AFL season, against North Melbourne at Docklands Stadium.

Johanissen was adjudged best afield in the Western Bulldogs' Grand Final victory over the Sydney Swans in 2016. He recorded 25 kicks among 33 disposals and 7 marks to win the Norm Smith Medal.[2] After speculation about his playing future at the Western Bulldogs in 2017 - previously being linked to both Western Australian clubs and Essendon - he re-signed with the club for a further 5 years to remain at the Bulldogs until at least 2022.
