A highly impressive debut performance indicated that pacey outside midfielder Jason Tutt looks to have the attributes to compete at the higher level. Boasting an impressive tank and penetrating kick, the 22-year-old took advantage of the increased opportunities in 2013. The Canberra product was recruited in the 2009 AFL Draft with the Bulldogs second round selection (pick 31 overall).

Season By Season

Season in short:

In his fourth AFL season, speedster Jason Tutt played 11 games and showed glimpses of his potential. Struggling for form early, the evasive runner found rhythm by season’s end, playing in seven of the Bulldogs’ last nine matches. Tutt was instrumental in the narrow win against the GWS Giants, booting two goals amid 18 classy disposals. By the season’s final weeks, he was providing late game dash and goalkicking nous as the starting substitute. Tutt will look to expand his playing portfolio in 2014 with more consistent performances and consolidating a spot in the starting line-up.

Stat that mattered:

Tutt’s impact in the team and increased game time this season bodes well for his future at the Bulldogs. In 2012 he played five games and was named substitute in three of them. This season however, the speedy winger played out 11 games and only donned the red or green vest three times. The increased exposure at senior level greatly assisted in him building confidence and form in the seniors.

What they said:

“He's (Tutt) got real attributes that we want to add to our team and there's other things in his game that he's chipping away at.”

- Senior Coach Brendan McCartney after the round 15 clash against GWS Giants

Tutt’s development was hampered this season - enduring a horror run with injuries. After a stalled start to the year the pacey midfielder began to regain confidence in his body, earning his selection in the senior side for five consecutive weeks. While his outside dash is one of his strengths, Tutt has continued to work on the contested side to his game this year.

Season By Season

The little speedster from Canberra made a sensational debut against Port Adelaide in round 22, kicking goals with his first three kicks and finishing with 26 disposals (18 kicks, eight handballs) to hold his spot for the rest of the season. An outside midfielder with a big tank and penetrating kick, he has impressed in endurance and strength testing this pre-season.
