Adam Hunter Biography

Tuesday, 1 September 2009
West Coast Eagle Adam Hunter says his injured shoulder left him with no option other than to retire.

"I've given it every shot and tried to find the best people and tried every avenue to try and get my shoulder right," he said.

"All I wanted to do growing up was play football. There are plenty of opportunities for other things.

"I love footy and I wanted to keep playing until I couldn't. I wanted to keep playing WAFL and then at South Bunbury. So to end like this is a bit of a shame."

West Coast's Adam Hunter will farewell the Eagles fans at Friday night's game against Richmond at Subiaco after succumbing to a shoulder injury that has effectively ended his career.
Tuesday, 25 August 2009
West Coast premiership player Adam Hunter could need a shoulder replacement at the end of this season which could spell the end of his AFL career.

"I don't know what Adam's thinking about his football career, but it's unlikely that he'd be capable of playing AFL football," Eagles coach John Worsfold.

"I don't think he can fix his shoulder.

"Obviously you can explore further things, but the bit I know is that the next major surgery for Adam will basically be a new shoulder, which they don't like to do with people of that age.

"His shoulder is in pretty bad shape."

Tuesday, 28 July 2009
West Coast coach John Worsfold says Adam Hunter will need to weigh up his options at the end of the season as he battles a shoulder injury.

"It's going to be a matter of him weighing up, with the advice he gets from the surgeons and doctors that he's spoken to, what that means for his long-term life, how much damage he's doing to his shoulder," Worsfold said.

"It's a bit like when players end their careers with no cartilage left in their knee - they can play and they have touch-up surgery every year, but they play in pain and they're wrecking their knees as they go.

"It sounds as though his shoulder's heading that way. If he can't play at 100 per cent, it's going to be hard for him to be a good AFL player."

Thursday, 28 May 2009
West Coast premiership utility Adam Hunter will play his 150th match in Friday night's clash with Carlton after missing three games with a shoulder injury.

"Hunts always looked like that bloke you go to when you needed that lift or a goal or some courageous act in the defensive part of the ground," assistant coach Scott Burns said.

"He's one of those players that a lot of coaches and teammates would like to have in their team because he is very coachable, hard at it and just a competitor. He doesn't want to be beaten.

"Coming from Melbourne to Perth, I can definitely see how much he is respected by the coaching staff and his teammates."
