Dom Sheed will forever be remembered by Eagles fans for his heroics in the 2018 Grand Final. Taking a mark just inside the Collingwood 50, Sheed slotted home the match-winner with 2 minutes left on the clock, winning the game and the Eagles’ fourth premiership title. Sheed was awarded the player of the finals medal and his match-winning kick will forever go down in Eagles history.
But he is a West Coast boy through and through, making his senior debut for Subacio FC in the WAFL at 17 years of age. Sheed was always a young prospect and prior to signing for the West Coast, captained the Western Australia Under 18 team in 2013 at the AFL Under 18 Championships, winning the Larke Medal for player of the tournament.
He was later drafted by the Eagles as an 11th round pick in the 2013 national draft and made his AFL debut in the opening match of the 2014 season, coming off the bench for Luke Shuey in the 3rd quarter. Later in 2015, he earnt himself a spot on the AFL 2015 Rising Star list.
After winning the Grand Final with the Eagles in 2018, Sheed Racked up a whopping 16 goals in 24 games for the Eagles in 2019, while averaging 20 disposals a game. He has since amassed 114 career appearances for the West Coast and has 54 career goals. Sheed is a very exciting young talent and one which Eagles fans will be hoping can drive them to the success of another final in the coming years.
