Will Schofield

Will Schofield is an ex Australian Rules Footballer who played as a key defender for the West Coast Eagles in the AFL.

Recruited to the West Coast Eagles in 2006, Will went from bottom-age interstate draftee to Premiership player and Life Member of the Eagles.  Never a walk up start at the selection table, often resulting in Will fighting hard for a place on the field with the Eagles over the years.  Will’s journey in football wasn’t always an easy one.  Admirably, Will’s determination, strength of character, resilience and persistence saw him play an integral role in the Club’s Premiership victory in the 2018 AFL Grand Final against Collingwood.
