Dan Houston Biography

Thursday, 20 August 2020
Dan Houston and Peter Ladhams are suspended for two and three matches respectively after they were deemed to have broken the AFL's COVID-19 protocols by entertaining visitors at Ladhams' home.

Port Adelaide also received a $50,000 sanction ($25,000 suspended) with the $25,000 to come out of the club's football department soft cap for next year.

"I'm very embarrassed to put the club and my teammates in this position. There was no excuse for my complacency and I fully accept the sanction handed down by the AFL," Ladhams said.

"Our entire club has worked so hard this season with all the challenges that have come our way and I feel like I have let the boys down with this breach," Houston said.

Monday, 17 February 2020
Dan Houston is relishing his permanent switch to the midfield, revealing he never thought it would happen until getting his chance midway through 2019.

"I thought I'd be down back for the majority of my career. Obviously last year in China, Rocky pulling out late, sort of opened that door a little bit, but I'd always gone in there at training to help improve my skills in that area," Houston said.

It's the first time Houston has completed a full pre-season as a midfield having started his career as a forward before moving into defence.

"I found last year I was trying to learn during the game and not so much during the week at training," he said.

"I think my running's improved, so I feel like I can get from contest to contest and get around the ground really well compared to last year."

Friday, 4 October 2019
Travis Boak wins his second John Cahill Medal as Port Adelaide's best and fairest player for 2019.

The 31-year-old polled 179 votes to finish 11 votes ahead of defender Darcy Byrne-Jones, who was a further vote clear of third-placed Dan Houston.

The medal caps a brilliant 13th season for Boak, who played 21 games and averaged 30 disposals and five clearances.

"There's been a lot of people write me off the last two or three years and say I shouldn't even be in the side," Boak told the Port Adelaide faithful.

"It's not nice to hear those things, they certainly hurt a little but for me it's about going out there and just trying to be the best person, the best player you can be and that's all I can do."

Wednesday, 14 November 2018
Dan Houston signs a three-year contract extension with Port Adelaide to remain at the club until the end of 2022.

"Iím really settled in Adelaide, Iíve got a lot of good friends here and Port Adelaide has made me feel welcome from day one," Houston said.

"I had to earn the respect of the players and coaches and work my way up but I have managed to string some games together and now I want to cement my spot, keep improving and become more of a leader."

Monday, 14 August 2017
Dan Houson is the round 21 NAB AFL Rising Star nominee after gathering 21 disposals and a goal in Port Adelaide's win over Collingwood at Adelaide Oval.
Wednesday, 5 July 2017
Dan Houston signs a two-year deal with Port Adelaide to remain at the club until the end of 2019.
Saturday, 29 April 2017
Dan Houston has settled in well to the Power's defence this season since being upgraded from the rookie list.

Houston's kicking in the back half was identified as an area that could benefit the Power as they looked to cut down their turnovers.

"Ken (coach Ken Hinkley) said one of the things we need to work on is our kicking and ball movement, and I thought I could bring that to the team," Houston said.

"Playing down back helps the team if I can use the ball well.

"If I can bring that to the team each week, then that's what Ken wants me to do."

Wednesday, 15 March 2017
Dan Houston is nominated as a pre-season rookie upgrade by Port Adelaide.

"Dan shows what can be achieved from a good pre-season," Power coach Ken Hinkley said.

"His poise and composure down there has stood out, as has his leadership. He's a kid who leads in what he does."

Monday, 6 March 2017
Dan Houston is emerging as a round-one bolter for the Power as they search for a replacement for injured defender Jasper Pittard.

Houston's impressive form across half-back has been one of positives to come out of the JLT Community Series.

"He was a forward his first year and towards the end of last year they put him down back and he did some good things," Power assistant coach Brendon Lade said.

"He's showed some really good signs and he kicks the ball as well as anyone.

"He's defending really well at the moment, so he's pressing his claims to put his hand up for selection."
