A fearless competitor, Lin Jong has forged a reputation as an explosive, clearance player since arriving at the Club as a rookie in late 2011.vJong surpassed expectations in his first AFL season to not only make his senior debut but to also make an impact at senior level.
Jong joined the Bulldogs with their first selection (pick 9) in the 2011 AFL Rookie Draft, and was elevated to the Club's senior list at the end of 2014.
Playing a career high 16 games in 2016, Jong's finals hopes were cruelled by a broken collarbone suffered in the second quarter of the Elimination Final.
Jong would return to the field in 2016, but not at senior level, with the tough as nails midfielder returning from injury to play in the Footscray Bulldogs' VFL Grand Final victory, receiving the Norm Goss medal as the best afield.
Jong is a two-time VFL premiership player with the Footscray Bulldogs.
