Alex Johnson Career
The Australian football player began the season as the side’s third tall defender, and he performed admirably and exceeded all expectations set by the coaching staff, ably filling the role left by retiring champion Craig Bolton earlier in the year. Throughout 2011, his poise and strong one-on-one contesting were standout features of his game, and he also improved his rebounding and attacking play as the season progressed. The player went on to play every game in the regular season and finals series for the Sydney Swans, helping them win the AFL Premiership. His ability to play as a key defender and professional demeanor earned him the Swansea City Player of the Year award in 2012.
In early 2014, he returned to the field for the Sydney reserves, but tore the ligament again in his first game back. Johnson was not able to return to running laps until September 2016 after this second injury, as it took three reconstruction surgeries between 2014 and 2016 before his knee successfully healed due to various complications and infections. During this time, the player remained on the Sydney playing list and served as an assistant coach with the Sydney reserves; and, despite being delisted by Sydney at the end of the 2016 season, he was redrafted as a rookie by the club during the 2017 AFL Rookie Draft. He returned to the field for the Sydney reserves in the NEAFL in July 2017, his first competitive game at any level for more than three years after his previous game.
He spent the rest of the season in the NEAFL before being sidelined by a groin injury during the 2017/18 offseason. The player returned to play his first senior AFL match since the 2012 AFL Grand Final against Collingwood in round 20, 2018, nearly six years after his last game. Unfortunately, the following week he suffered another knee injury, this time rupturing the ACL in his previously undamaged right knee, effectively ending his season and career with the Swans. He was delisted by Sydney at the end of the 2018 season after appearing in 47 games over the previous eight years. Johnson returned to Melbourne in 2019 to play and coach for the Northern Blues of the Victorian Football League. In 2020 season, he signed for the old boys’ club of his alma mater, Old Xaverians, but suffered yet another ACL injury in preseason training shortly before the season was cancelled due to the COVID- 19 Pandemic.
