Bio

Rhylee has had a connection with AFL ever since he was born, with his dad Scott having played 324 games for the club and winning 7 Best & Fairest awards. He grew up in East Keilor with his parents and younger twin brothers and attended St.Kevins College.

Rylee is a small inside Midfielder/Forward who was drafted by the Western Bulldogs during the 2018 NAB AFL Draft under the Father/Son rule. West excels at stoppages, applies pressure on the opposition and has a knack of hitting the scoreboard. West is a product of the Calder Cannons in the TAC Cup as well as St. Kevins College in the APS. Rhylee was also a member of the NAB AFL Academy. In his first AFL season, a late-season senior debut came for West in Round 19, 2019 against Fremantle, following strong VFL form. The 19-year-old son went on to play three AFL matches in total, including the Club’s Elimination Final against GWS Giants, showcasing his competitive nature and skill both as a midfielder and pressure forward. In 2019 he was also placed runner-up in the VFL’s JJ Liston Trophy for the league’s best and fairest player.
