Alec Waterman signs a one-year deal with Essendon to be listed on the club’s Rookie A list for the 2021 season.

Saturday, 8 October 2016
Jake Waterman - the son of two-time West Coast premiership player Chris Waterman - is one of 81 players vying for the attention of recruiters at the NAB AFL Draft Combine ahead of next month's draft.

But weighing heavily on the 18-year-old's mind is the wretched fate of older brother Alec, who was delisted by West Coast last month after failing to crack into the senior side.

An inside midfielder who showed plenty of potential, Alec was taken by the Eagles as a father-son pick in 2014 but was struck down with glandular fever the following year and never managed to fully recover.

For Waterman, it was a reminder of the importance of not wasting his opportunity to become an AFL footballer.

"(Alec) has gone through a lot recently and it's been pretty sad and hard for the family to see him go down like that," he said.

"That's what was sort of going through my mind when it was all happening, just to not go through the motions and stuff like that and make sure I get the best out of myself, because it can end as quick as that."

West Coast rookie Alec Waterman has been granted indefinite leave from the club as he battles ongoing problems with glandular fever

"We believe it is necessary to give Alec an extended absence so he can get back to full health," Eagles football manager Craig Vozzo said.

"Alec's health and wellbeing are paramount and we need to give him as much time as that takes.

"He has been frustrated at the lack of progress that has occurred despite the conservative approach to his recovery that was mapped out by our medical staff. Hopefully we will see Alec back to his effervescent self in the near future."

Friday, 28 November 2014
West Coast select Alec Waterman with pick No.76 in thee 2014 NAB AFL Draft.

"Alec has been a bit of a bonus," Eagles recruiting manager Rohan O'Brien said.

"We thought during the year that the price we would have to pay for Alec may be a little bit more than what it was, albeit understanding it's hard for clubs to commit in the middle rounds of the draft so to get him where we did was terrific.

"We think he's played well on a wing, he's been very good through the midfield and being a young club, to get father-sons is terrific for the tradition and future."
