Sam Switkowski Biography

Wednesday, 11 March 2020
Sam Switkowski is cleared of being infected with the coronavirus.

Switkowski was tested for COVID-19 after coming down with flu-like symptoms following contact with a friend who had been to China. After being cleared, he revealed he was out and about on his Instagram story and that he could return to training soon.

"Sam's relieved, and feeling quite well. In reality, it's been proven to be a cold, and something that isn't overly dramatic," Fremantle chief executive Simon Garlick said.

Sam Switkowsi signs a two-year contract extension with Fremantle to remain at the club until the end of 2021.

"It's just great to be able to extend and take a little bit of pressure off this year and just focus on my footy. Knowing that I'll be here for at least a couple more years is really exciting," Switkowski said.

"I've had a really good pre-season, probably my best pre-season for a long time. I had a little bit of a setback a couple of weeks ago, but it's very minor and the recovery is going really well. Hopefully, I should play a big part in 2019."

After being overlooked in the last three national drafts, Sam Switkowski had almost given up hope before being picked up by Fremantle at pick No.73 in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft.

"By pick No.73 there were only a few of us left and we were just about ready to pack up and go," Switkowski said.

"I didn't really go into it with much expectation. I guess having missed out over the last few years, if you go in thinking you're going to get picked up, it's more disappointing.

"I was pretty calm and watching it without any expectation. By the end of it I knew with just a few picks to go things were looking unlikely, and then it happened.

"I was just sitting there in a bit of shock not really knowing what to say. It was a good moment."
