A home grown talent, West Coast drafted Jarrad Schofield with selection number 49 in the 1992 National Draft. Injuries ensured he managed a mere seven games in his first three seasons with the Eagles, before exploding onto the scene during a scintillating 1996.

Jarrad played 22 games and was nominated for the AFL Rising Star award in 1996, which provided a solid platform to develop his career. At the conclusion of 1998, he was traded to Port Adelaide, where he played 131 games in six consistent years, including the 2004 premiership.

A hard running, tough midfielder, Jarrad requested to return home at the conclusion of the 2004 season, and Fremantle happily obliged. He has been recruited by the Dockers to add some toughness to their talented midfield, and will provide the experience he gained at one of Australia ís most professional clubs.
