The explosive onballers 2017 honours include the Brownlow Medal, Norm Smith Medal, AFL Coach’s Player of the year, Leigh Matthews Trophy Gary Ayres award for the best finals player, All-Australian selection and now a second best-and-fairest.
Martin won the Brownlow with record 36 votes and record 11 best-on-grounds. He was ranked No.1 in the AFL for the inside 50s, centre clearances, score involvements and NO.2 for contested possessions and meters gained this year.
The boy from Castlemaine became just the seventh player in VFL-AFL to own the Brownlow and the Norm Smith and the first to win both in the same season.
He is now one of the 26 players to win multiple Jack Dyer Medals and the first to go back-to-back since Cotchin in 2011-12.
