FROM HIS COACH:
Jed was one of those players that just went hard at it. Whenever he was around his teammates knew they were safe as Jed would protect them. He loves the contest. In saying that, Jed has a profound way of reading the play as well and positions himself well behind the ball. Many a times he was the person winning us a ball back off the opposition. His skills have come along in leaps and bounds this year and that is a result of the hard work and dedication he puts in, It's going to be very interesting to see Jed progress through the coming years in AFL.
