Jarred Ellis

Date of Birth: 14/04/1995

Club: Gold Coast FC

Games (Goals): 0 (0)

Recruited From: 2013 NAB AFL Rookie Draft, Pick 63 from Broadbeach (NEAFL)

Growing up on the New South Wales border at Lennox Heads, Jarred loved his AFL even though he lived in a Rugby centric community. His passion for the game grew as he became older, however if he was to develop his skills this would entail driving back and forward from the Gold Coast a number of times per week to attend training at either Broadbeach FC or the Gold Coast Suns Academy. 

After years of dedication and commitment, not to mention the travel his parents suffered, Jarred was selected at the end of the 2013 season as a Rookie for the Gold Coast Suns. Although Jarred moved from his family and relocated to the Gold Coast, Jarred had the advantage of not being to far from home and could commute back to see them.

Jarred is an athletic player who can play in almost all positions over the ground which is a great strength. Even though he suffered a few injuries during his first season of senior footy for Gold Coast in the NEAFL competition, Jarred will take great confidence into 2015 after being re-signed as a Rookie for a further year.
