Coming from a famous South Australian footballing family, Ebert was drafted by the West Coast Eagles with pick 13 in 2007. He made an immediate impact at the Eagles, earning a Rising Star nomination in 2008 and playing 76 games over 4 seasons, before returning home to play at the Port Adelaide Football Club.
A strong midfielder, Ebert is renowned for his ability to win contested ball, tackling pressure, and outworking opponents. He finished runner up in the Port Adelaide Best and Fairest in 2012, and his professionalism, maturity and approach to the game helped keep him injury free as he played his 100th consecutive game of AFL in 2016.
Also a strong leader, Ebert was nominated into Port’s leadership group early into his time at the club, and his role on and off the field has been recognised as one of great mentoring. In playing over 200 games of AFL, Brad has made his own name as part of the Ebert dynasty and etched himself as one of the best and most consistent midfielders to have played at Port Adelaide.
