Schoey makes history

 
Subiaco’s Jarrad Schofield will reach his 100th game against West Perth and becomes only the second person to achieve the tonne as a player and coach at SFC.

Schofield arrived in 2013 after doing his apprenticeship in the development ranks and has had an undisputed influence on the club and the playing group with a 69% winning percentage.

Renowned for his infectious energy and work ethic, Schofield has been delighted with his journey as the Lions head man.  
 
“It’s been a really enjoyable journey, obviously, we had a tough start in 2013 only winning six games but the confidence shown by the club and the board to administer the game-plan with assistance of the resources at hand has developed a really strong culture. The people involved with Subiaco have made the last four years enjoyable and that includes the staff, runners, support staff, players to administration.” Said Schofield

Schofield played over 200 games for West Coast, Port Adelaide and Fremantle in his AFL career and took influence from some notable football figures.
 
“I absorbed a lot of influences during my playing career with Mick Malthouse and Mark Williams being notable affecters. I’ve taken different pieces of their philosophy and tried to implement them into my own coaching style. The coaches I have now have also been a major influence, they are business minded people who are passionate about managing the group and achieving the best out of their potential.” Said Schofield
 
Subi’s fast paced, run and carry game-style has been a feature of the WAFL since his appointment of coach and Schofield believes it mirrors the current state of play at AFL level.
 
“I like to endorse a fast-paced game, I really like the brand of football that’s on display at the highest level and I like to encourage our boys to play with flair and instinct whilst trying to keep it as simple as possible.” Said Schofield
 


With an eclectic group of young men the AFL premiership player believes developing relationships is crucial for a playing group.

“Everyone has to work together, there are so many unique people from different walks of life at the club and it is important everyone buys in. The relationships that are developed implies a strong culture on and off the field and it helps the playing group to become selfless,
 
“My role is an important one because it’s my responsibility to make sure the team dynamics are strong and that everyone is playing for each other. It’s crucial that the older lads always go out of their way to make the younger ones feel welcome and it ebbs through the process.”
 
Subi have developed a reputation of translating un-wanted talent into stars with the likes of Sam Menegola, Liam Ryan, Corey Adamson and Liam Baker thriving at the Lions den.

“Building the trust with the players as individuals is the core factor in connecting with the players. We not only want to see them play good football but want to manage their lives to help them to develop into strong young men with purpose. It makes it easier to produce results on field when they feel on top of things off the field. “
 
In regards to 2017, fresh challenges faced the Lions and Schofield is proud of how the group has responded.
 
“We identified our challenges in the pre-season and this is one of the youngest groups we’ve had. The bottom half of the list is young and raw so it has been important to get them up to speed and maintain consistency,
 
“We also had to make sure the core group stayed together and were willing to go again after the disappointing loss in the 2016 Grand Final but I think we’ve managed to achieve that. Our group is strong and the proof is in the results.” Added Schofield
 
 
Looking towards the future; the goals for Subi’s head man haven’t changed as he thrives for more Maroons success.
 
“I’m always hungry for more success and the goal is to win more premierships for the club,
 
“This mentality applies for all the grades through league, reserves and to colts. We are also committed to upskilling our coaches who will inevitably make the program stronger. Success has always been the short term and long term goal.” Said Schofield
 
There have been many characters along the journey for Schofield and he was quick to offer credit to those around him approaching the 100-game milestone.
 
"I would like to thank the Subi board for having the trust and support to allow the implementation of the football program. All of the close friends surrounding me, you know who you are, and the ongoing influence of my wife Bec and the kids Kiera and Taj. They help me fulfil my passions and their presence on and off the field makes the rigours of coaching football a lot easier." added Schofield
