Steven May’s first two years in the red and blue couldn’t have been further apart.
After being traded to the club for Pick No.6 in the 2018 National Draft, May had a nightmare debut season, struggling with injury and managing just eight games for the club.
But come 2020, May had his body in career-best shape and didn’t miss a match.
The former Suns co-captain became a leader in his own right of this Melbourne side and was an unlucky omission from the All Australian squad.
May came runner-up in the club’s Best and Fairest award after becoming one of the most reliable one-on-one defenders in the competition and helping kick the Demons into attack from half-back.
His passion on the field sets the tone for his teammates, and he has quickly become a fan favourite, proving to be a worthwhile trade for the Dees.
