Chris Schmidt (footballer)

Chris Schmidt (born 20 March 1989) is an Australian rules footballer. He formerly played in the AFL, for the Brisbane Lions and Richmond. He now plays for SANFL club West Adelaide, the club he was originally drafted from.

Brisbane Lions career

He was drafted by Brisbane Lions with the 34th selection in the 2006 AFL Draft from West Adelaide in the SANFL. Debuting for Brisbane in Round 10, 2007 as an 18-year-old against Richmond, Schmidt struggled with just 1 kick and 5 handballs. The match ended in a draw. Schmidt played only one more game for the club, the following round against the Western Bulldogs, and only managed 3 disposals. His Lions career was riddled with injuries, including osteitis pubis and a persistent shoulder problem. Schmidt played most of his footy with the Suncoast Lions during this period. He was delisted at the end of the 2008 season.[1]

Adelaide career

Schmidt returned to South Australia when he was drafted at number 26 in the 2009 Rookie Draft by Adelaide. He played senior football for his previous club, West Adelaide, before being elevated from the Crows rookie list due to a Brodie Martin long term injury.[2]

He made his Adelaide debut in the Round 3 loss to Melbourne, and picked up 20 disposals, showing his improvement from his Lions days.

Schmidt was delisted by Adelaide at the end of the 2011 AFL season.

West Adelaide career

He returned to the SANFL in 2012, again playing for West Adelaide.

In the 2013 Foxtel Cup Grand Final, Schmidt collected 26 disposals and nine clearances, at 81 per cent disposal efficiency. He was awarded the Coles Medal, as the player best on ground.[3]
