Willem Drew Biography

Tuesday, 27 June 2023
Willem Drew is the forgotten man of Port Adelaide's feted midfield - and he wouldn't have it any other way. The unsung 70-gamer is often deployed in tagging roles on the opposition's most dangerous midfielder while rarely attracting attention.

"Happy just to go about my business and do whatever is needed for the team," Drew said about his role.

"Obviously we have got some really special players in our team who are playing really good footy so I am happy just to do my bit. I'm a pretty low-key sort of bloke."

Willem Drew's first pre-season as an AFL player at Port Adelaide is going just as his cousin, Essendon defender Marty Gleeson, predicted.

"He said, 'You're going to be knackered most of the time Ė all you do is train, eat and sleep'," Drew said.

"I was always asking (Gleeson) questions when he was back home at Koroit. He helped me a fair bit going into my draft year to make sure I was prepared."
