From: Port Adelaide, Selection 11, 1995 National Draft

Number: 31 1996-1998

The brother of Demon David and Essendon/Port Adelaide player Che, was drafted by the Demons to fulfil a pledge they'd made to their mother that David and Donald wouldn't be separated.

After the Round 4, 1997 match against the Western Bulldogs, Cockatoo-Collins historically featured in the first ever racial vilification case to go before the AFL tribunal. Todd Curley was ultimately found not guilty of the charge.

Despite his lofty draft position he never found a permanent place in the team and was delisted after the 1998 season.
