Southport’s Jamison Shea is the Round 13 NEAFL Rising Star
nominee after another solid performance for the Sharks on the weekend.
The midfielder/forward was named among the Sharks best yet again as they triumphed over NT Thunder by 15 points at Fankhauser Reserve.
In wet conditions, the 21-year-old collected 20 disposals, five marks, four inside 50s and 108 Champion Data ranking points.
Since joining Southport this year, the Northern Knights product has booted 10 goals from eight games and averaged 17 disposals and five marks per game.
Shea spent two seasons with Footscray in the VFL before his move north, where he was lured to the NEAFL by premiers Southport.
A good kick for goal and a natural leader, Shea is well respected by teammates and coaches with his team-first attitude and commitment.
He is the first Southport player to be nominated for the award this year.
The NEAFL Rising Star is awarded to the most promising young talent in the NEAFL competition.
Nominees must be under the age of 21 and played less than 20 senior games (excluding games as AFL club academy players) at the start of the 2019 season.
