Travis Colyer (born 24 August 1991) is a professional Australian rules footballer, currently playing for the Essendon Football Club in the Australian Football League.

AFL career[edit]

Colyer was selected by Essendon with the 26th pick in the 2009 AFL Draft. He previously played for Claremont in the WAFL and Trinity College, Perth.[1] He also represented Western Australia in the 2009 AFL National Under 18 Championships and was named in the 2009 U18 All Australian team.[2]

Colyer played his first AFL game against Carlton in round 3 of the 2010 AFL season.

Colyer, along with 33 other Essendon players, was found guilty of using a banned performance enhancing substance, thymosin beta-4, as part of Essendon's sports supplements program during the 2012 season. He and his team-mates were initially found not guilty in March 2015 by the AFL Anti-Doping Tribunal,[3] but a guilty verdict was returned in January 2016 after an appeal by the World Anti-Doping Agency. He was suspended for two years which, with backdating, ended in November 2016; as a result, he served approximately fourteen months of his suspension and missed the entire 2016 AFL season.[4]

Statistics[edit]

Statistics are correct to Round 9, of the 2015 season.[5]
