Jason Johannisen is the latest player to commit to the Western Bulldogs, putting pen to a new deal this week.
Johannisen’s speed and neat disposal has been a feature of his game, and this season, the 21-year-old has added flexibility to his arsenal.
Johannisen has been used as a wingman and half forward to great effect recently, to go along with his encouraging track record as a small rebounding defender.
List Manager Jason McCartney said Johannisen was keen to commit to the Club, and the Club equally to him.
“Jason is another young player who we see as an important part of our future, so from that end it’s a very positive result for our Club.”
“Jason has shown a real commitment to the path we’re on, and his signature is evidence of that.”
The South African born utility said his decision to stay at Western Bulldogs with his young teammates was an easy one.
“I am so happy to be here right now… it’s going to be a good journey,” Johannisen said.
Johannisen was taken with pick 39 in the 2011 Rookie Draft, and then elevated a year later to the senior list, after showing promise in his debut season.
