Name: Jessica Wuetschner

Age: 23:

Height: 162cm

Occupation: Trade sales

Local club: East Fremantle

Position: Half forward

First starting playing football: 16 in a competition but since I could stand I’ve had a ball in my hand.

How you got involved in football: A friend of mine told me there was a women’s league in 2009, and I’ve never looked back.

Achievements: Tasmanian open state team (2011, 2013), High performance academy (2012)

AFL team supported: Port Adelaide

Biggest influence on your football: It’s hard to say, I’ve had many people influence me in a positive way but if I had to choose, probably my old coach Andy Smith and Nikki Harwood.

If you could have dinner with any three people, who would they be: My mum and dad because I live 4000km away from them and I miss them! Rebel Wilson because it would be the funniest dinner I’ve ever had!

Best advice you’ve ever received: Hard work will beat talent any day.
