Collingwood Football Club today confirmed through their website that Sydney University Australian National Football Club (SUANFC) representative Jarrod Witts will be selected with pick 67 in the upcoming National Draft and placed straight on the senior list.
Witts has been part of the SUANFC Colts program for the past three years, having played a key on field role in the club’s inaugural Premiership in 2009. Whilst injury and representative duties have limited Jarrod’s on field involvement over the past two seasons, he took on the running duties in a number of games during the 2010 season, including the Colt’s back-to-back Grand Final win.

“The club would like to congratulate Jarrod on this achievement,” said Tim Air, SUANFC Commercial & Community Operations Manager.
“We look forward to seeing him make his AFL debut in the very near future.”
