Jed Bews Biography

Wednesday, 20 September 2017
Jed Bews signs a new deal with Geelong that will keep him at the club until the end of 2019.

"He's almost that stereotypical young athlete who hasn't played much footy before he got into the system, who was a bit raw and rough around the edges in some respects, that with experience, (and) good coaching from our development guys, has really come on," Geelong coach Chris Scott said of Bews.

"He's an important part of our team. I'm really pleased to hear he's committed to the club."

Friday, 17 July 2015
Jed Bews signs a two-year contract extension with the Cats that will keep him at the club until the end of 2017.

"There was no real decision, as soon as they offered it I was more than happy to take it," Bews said.

"I'm starting to feel a bit more at home in the back six, which is good.

"I'm starting to get some games together, last year I was in and out but this year I've been lucky enough to play every game so far."

Wednesday, 7 January 2015
Jed Bews is working to improve his fitness in 2015 after missing out on the Cats' finals series in 2014 because he wasn't fit enough to run out a full game in the AFL.

"They'd watch me and they could tell I was tired," Bews said about Geelong's coaching staff.

"They knew that and they've tailored my pre-season accordingly so I've just got to keep working on that.

"Playing a few games last year and having a little taste of it was really good.

"Hopefully I can take that next step. Keep improving. That's what the coaches want to see and hopefully I can secure a spot down back. That would be nice."

Saturday, 17 May 2014
Jed Bews makes his AFL debut for Geelong with 15 disposals (10 kicks and 5 handballs), 8 marks and 5 tackles in a 32-point loss to Fremantle.
Thursday, 15 May 2014
Another of Geelong's father-son recruits will hit the big-time this weekend, with Jed Bews to make his debut against Fremantle at Patersons Stadium in round 9.

The 20-year-old, whose father Andrew played 207 games for the Cats between 1982 and 1993 and captained the club, has been rewarded for a number of consistent performances in the VFL.

"I don't want to change too much from what I've been doing in the VFL, which is just to lock down my direct opponent and try and attack from there," Bews said.

"It will be awesome playing with Mackie, Boris (Enright) and all those boys down there. It will be awesome fun."

Wednesday, 5 December 2012
Geelong father-son recruit Jed Bews has put on 9kg since joining the club in late 2011 and is confident of making his AFL debut next season.

"Putting the weight on happened pretty quickly, which was good," Bews said.

"It gives me more confidence to compete with the bigger bodies. When I was a kid I was a pretty scrawny little thing, so I always had to rely on speed and other things, whereas now I can use my strength a little bit more."

Thursday, 8 March 2012
Jed Bews had only one handball and a mark but says he learned plenty from taking on Gold Coast in the NAB Cup.

"I played a couple of VFL games last year, and that was a step up, but Friday night was a step up again," Bews said.

"It would've been nice to get a couple more touches, but it was still exciting."

Wednesday, 30 November 2011
Jed Bews, son of former Cat Andrew, declined an offer by Matthew Stokes to wear the number his father sported during his decorated career.

"When we went to Falls Creek [for a pre-season training camp] he pulled me aside and said, 'If you want it, it's yours'," Bews said.

"It was definitely tempting. But I said to him, 'Nah, it's all right. It's your premiership jumper and it probably means more to you. I thought it was better to get a new number and make it my own."
