Biography

Jason Porplyzia first arrived at West Lakes as an 18-year-old rookie in 2003 but was delisted after the one season with a game to his name. Over the next two years he quickly developed with West Adelaide, where he won the best and fairest in 2005. This earned him a second chance with the Crows via the 2006 Pre-season Draft. On debut the small forward kicked three goals.

During the 2008 and 2009 seasons fans saw the best Porplyzia had to offer, with the talented attacker fighting through a recurring dislocated shoulder concern to kick five goals in Round 17, 2008. The next season he was the Malcolm Blight Medal runner-up and a part of the 40-man All Australian squad thanks to 57 goals.

With injuries woes often lingering in the background, Porplyzia underwent a shoulder reconstruction in 2011 after he dislocated his shoulder in Round One – having booted one goal with his only disposal of the game so far. It did not stop him for long, however, and soon enough he was back on-field kicking goals. He retired at the end of the 2014 season, returning to West Adelaide where he played in their 2015 SANFL premiership.
