Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: -
Junior Club: Rockingham (WA)/Peel Thunder (WAFL)
Draft History: 2015 NAB AFL Draft 2ns round selection (Gold Coast) No. 34 overall.

Josh Schoenfeld once again proved why he was the club’s best runner when he took out both pre-season time trials in emphatic fashion. The 21-year-old is now entering his fourth AFL season and will be desperate to add to his 14-game tally. His opportunities so far have been limited at AFL level, with the inside midfielder playing just six games last season where he averaged 13 disposals. 

His form in the NEAFL however has been excellent, with Schoenfeld consistently polling MVP votes from coaches and umpires and racking up high numbers of possessions on a regular basis. An ankle injury during pre-season will see Schoenfeld miss the start of the season but he’ll be desperate to prove he’s worthy of a spot in Stuart Dew’s side in 2019 upon return.
