Template:Infobox AFL player NEW

Ryan Willits (born 23 January 1987 in Melbourne, Victoria) is an Australian Rules Football player who played with the Port Adelaide Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL) and also for Glenelg and West Adelaide in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL).

Career

Ryan was recruited by [1]

Standing at 198 cm and weighing 100 kg, Ryan Willits was one of the most powerful young players in the AFL in terms of strength and size.

He debuted for Port late in the 2006 AFL Season, playing 3 games and totalling 25 disposals.[1] He has played in the ruck and as a key forward for Port. He has also played as a defender for his former SANFL club Glenelg. In 2007 Willits was de-listed by Port Adelaide, before being re-listed by Port as a rookie. He was de-listed again in 2008 and has played in the SANFL ever since.

Ryan Willits moved to West Adelaide in April 2007 to seek more opportunities to play in a forward role and led the Bloods goal kicking in both 2008 and 2009, though he has since proven to be one of the better ruckmen in the competition.[2] At the close of the 2011 season Willits has played 116 games and kicked 96 goals in the SANFL.

Willits returned to Melbourne after West Adelaide's 2012 SANFL Grand Final loss to Norwood. He has signed to play for Northern Football League club Montmorency for 2013 season
