Former Student Jarrod Witts Named Gold Coast Suns Co-Captain

Former Sydney Uni AFL premiership player Jarrod Witts, has been named co-captain of the Gold Coast Suns for their 2019 AFL campaign.

Captain of the Club’s inaugural Colts (U/19s) side, Witts also enjoyed premiership success with the Colts in 2009.

Originally, Witts was identified as a talented rugby player and cricketer, before he was awarded a NSW Scholarship by Collingwood in 2008.

In 2011, Witts was drafted by the Pies with pick 67 in the National Draft, one year after the Pies had also drafted Sydney Uni player Tom Young.

Witts played 38 games for Collingwood between 2012-1016, before he was traded to the Gold Coast Suns, where he recently signed a 5-year contract extension to remain a Sun until the end of 2024.

Witts will captain the Suns alongside teammate David Swallow, as the Suns look to improve on recent season’s form.

From everyone here at Sydney Uni AFL, we wish Jarrod all the best with the season ahead.
