Sam Weideman Biography

Friday, 7 June 2019
Sam Weideman signs a new two-year deal with Melbourne to remain at the club until the end of 2021.

"It was a massive weight on my shoulders. It was a lot of pressure, which I didn't really enjoy too much. It affected me quite hard mentally and affected my footy as well," Weideman said about the stress of being in the final year of his contract.

"I think the early stages of the year the pressure was building, and it got a bit overwhelming at times. It's a massive relief to have signed now and I'm very excited for what's to come."

Saturday, 19 January 2019
The opportunity to be the linchpin in Melbourne's forward line appeals strongly to Sam Weideman and the emerging Demon is preparing himself to grab the extra responsibility with both hands.

"With Jesse (Hogan) gone the spot has opened up and I see it as an opportunity," Weideman told AFL.com.au.

"'Goody' (coach Simon Goodwin) has spoken to me and told me there's no added pressure from any of the coaches or anything like that. It's just that there's clearly an opportunity there, and I recognise that.

"I put it on myself to grab that with both hands and I want to be a consistent member of the senior team next year so it's up to me and I've just got to keep driving myself."

Tuesday, 4 September 2018
Sam Weideman becomes a key component of Melbourne's finals campaign, having to fill in up forward for the injured Jesse Hogan.

"I put in a pretty long batch of work in the VFL at a pretty consistent level, which I thought was pleasing and gave me a lot of confidence that I was actually ready to go," Weideman said.

"I believed in myself and so did the other players. That was a great feeling.

"I felt ready (the other times), but I think a lot of my craft and decision-making at the higher level was a bit off and I don't think that part of my game was ready."

Thursday, 23 February 2017
Sam Weideman signs a new deal with Melbourne that will keep him at the club until the end of 2019.

Wedieman has put on 6kg this pre-season, a weight gain which without affecting his running capacity has him far better placed to provide a strong target in attack in 2017.

"I feel a lot more confident in marking contests and contests around the ball now, just being able to stay strong and it's really helping me grow as a player," Weideman said.

"I just need to keep adapting to what my body is turning into and hopefully it's steering me in the right direction."

Thursday, 4 August 2016
Sam Weideman is set to make his debut for Melbourne against Hawthorn this weekend.

"We've really tried to make the players earn their spots over the last three years, so he is one that we have been thinking about for a little while," Swans coach Paul Roos said.

"His game last week was exceptional in the VFL, so he comes in in really good form and obviously he'll need to be. He's playing against a very good team."

Tuesday, 24 November 2015
Melbourne select Sam Weideman with pick No.4 in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft.

"We needed someone to partner up with Jesse Hogan and Sam, we believe, can develop into a really good key forward with the traits that he's got the character of the boy, his ability to keep his eye on the ball and his forward craft in general," Melbourne recruiting boss Jason Taylor said.
