FOOTY isn’t about individual records, but Jake Bowey is on the edge of one worth noting.

The 19-year-old, who was selected with pick No.21 in the 2020 National Draft, pulled on the red and blue for the first time in Round 21 last season, and hasn’t missed a game since.

In that time, the Demons have played 14 matches and won every single one of them.

According to Twitter sensation @sirswampthing, this makes Bowey the 14th player in VFL/AFL history to be undefeated after the first 14 games of his career.

If Melbourne is to defeat St Kilda on Sunday, assuming Bowey lines up for the 15th time, he will become the only player to win the first 15 consecutive games of his career without missing a match.

To continue breaking records and become the most successful player from debut, Bowey would need to remain in the Dees' line-up and continue winning until Round 12.

That would take him to 19 wins, jumping Collingwood’s Albert Lauder who won the first 18 games of his career between 1926 and 1929, although his performances were not consecutive.

Across those next five games, Melbourne would have to overcome St Kilda (MCG), West Coast (Optus Stadium), North Melbourne (Marvel Stadium), Fremantle (MCG) and Sydney (SCG).
