Jeremy McGovern Biography

Saturday, 7 October 2017
Elliot Yeo wins the John Worsfold medal as West Coast's best and fairest for the 2017 season.

Yeo polled 197 votes to edge out Jeremy McGovern by six, with Luke Shuey (180) rounding out the top three.

"At the end of 2016 I had a fair few things that I wanted to work on. It was a disappointing year for myself," Yeo said.

"It (form turnaround) definitely came from a lot of hard work, but it also came from having a mentor such as 'Hick' (assistant coach Adrian Hickmott), he's been absolutely phenomenal for myself this year.

"He's one of those coaches who keeps you accountable but also pushes you to the limits he thinks you're capable of."

Monday, 20 March 2017
Jeremy McGovern wants to be used as a ruckman this AFL season, but he doubts his wish will be granted.

"It's my favourite position," McGovern said.

"It's not my best position, I don't think. But I'd love to play it at some stage if I have to. I just love it. You get to run around and do what you want pretty much.

"Simmo (Simpson) knows I'd love to play it. But I'm not a ruckman. I wish I was a bit taller and a bit stronger."

Wednesday, 22 February 2017
Shannon Hurn will captain West Coast for a third straight year in 2017, while former Hawthorn skipper Sam Mitchell will provide support as a member of the leadership group.

Dynamic midfielder Luke Shuey has been elevated to co-vice captain alongside dual Coleman medallist Josh Kennedy.

Star duo Jeremy McGovern and Andrew Gaff have also been added to the leadership group with Eric Mackenzie, who was the club's best and fairest in 2014 before requiring a knee reconstruction early the following year, the only omission from last year's group.

Matt Priddis rounds out the seven-man group, which was decided by a player vote, before being ticked off by the football department and then the board.

"Shannon Hurn has been a terrific leader since his appointment as captain three years ago and he has great respect from his teammates," Eagles coach Adam Simpson said.

"Over the last couple of years Luke Shuey, Andrew Gaff and Jeremy McGovern have certainly grown within the group and it has been reflected in the player vote.

"Clearly Josh Kennedy and Matt Priddis have been outstanding leaders for a long time and to have someone of Sam Mitchell's calibre at our disposal will be invaluable."

Wednesday, 8 February 2017
Jeremy McGovern says he still has ambitions to spend more time in the ruck.

"Ruck is my favourite position, it's probably not my best position, but if I had the choice I'd love to play there," McGovern said.

"I want to give Simmo the option, if he needs it, to be a bit more versatile with going up forward or in the ruck."

Saturday, 4 February 2017
Jeremy McGovern says he would love for brother Mitch McGovern to return to Western Australia.

Speculation is rife that Mitch could seek a move home to play for the Eagles or Fremantle following reports he has delayed contract talks with the Crows.

"I actually don't think we've ever played together. He's my brother, so I would love to play with him," Jeremy McGovern said.

"I'll let him know that I'm pretty keen to play with him for sure, but at the end of the day it's his career, it's up to him."

Mitch burst onto the scene in a potent Adelaide forward line last year, booting 32 majors from 23 games including both of the Crows' finals after making his debut in round one.

"I wasn't too surprised," Jeremy said of his brother's maiden season.

"I've watched him obviously since he was a little fella and I've always thought he had pretty good talent.

"I thought he was pretty unlucky in his first year to miss out on the draft."

Friday, 9 September 2016
Jeremy McGovern says he needs to work on his durability to give West Coast the option to use him in the ruck more next season.

"So I can get around the ground a bit and give Simmo a few more options," McGovern said.

"Obviously, if he wants to throw me forward or in the ruck, I can go there and play well there, whereas I'm probably a bit sore at the moment. Something like that I'll probably work on."

Monday, 8 February 2016
West Coast coach Adam Simpson says he will decide where Jeremy McGovern plays, despite the Eagles youngster wanting an opportunity to move into the ruck and on-ball this season.

"I'll tell him where he's needs to play," Simpson said.

"He wants to play on-ball as well.

"It's great that he says that but we'll see how we go. The one thing I do know, he'd be a different type of ruckman than most."

Tuesday, 22 September 2015
Jeremy McGovern signs a two-year contract extension with West Coast that will see him remain at the Eagles until at least the end of the 2018 season.
Monday, 1 December 2014
Crows draftee Mitch McGovern hopes to follow in the footsteps of his brother, Jeremy McGovern, who made his debut in 2014 for West Coast this year, playing 13 games.

"Just seeing the path that Jeremy has taken, it's helped me a lot," McGovern said.

"I know what to expect now and it just makes the AFL environment a lot more comfortable.

"Jeremy has always just said to be myself; don't try to change who you are and always just try your best in everything."

Monday, 30 June 2014
Jeremy McGovern signs a two-year contract extension with the Eagles.

"I got off to a bit of a rocky start when I turned up out of shape for pre-season training, but 'Simmo' had an honest chat with me and he has helped me turn things around," McGovern said.

"He has been very supportive and I really appreciate the chances he has given me. I'm also grateful to the club for sticking by me through the tough times."
