Jamie Bennell was born on the 7th of June 1990 in Bunbury, Western Australia. He was drafted in the 2008 AFL National Draft, at pick number 35, by the Melbourne Football Club. Bennell played 57 games for the Demons, before being injured in 2012.
He moved back home to Western Australia earlier this year after being picked up by the West Coast Eagles in the 2012 Rookie Draft. Recently I spoke to him about dealing with injury as well as moving clubs and his plans of being a small defender for the West Coast Eagles.
