Max Gawn’s list of accolades grew once again in 2019, after a dominant season from the Melbourne ruckman.
During a difficult year for the club, Gawn’s output was sensational, averaging 36 hit-outs and 12 to advantage per game – the most in the competition.
For the third time in four years, Gawn was recognised among the league’s best with an All Australian blazer, earning his spot on the interchange as one of the best 22 players for the season.
He also polled 12th in the AFLCA Award and shared Melbourne’s Keith ‘Bluey’ Truscott Memorial Trophy with Clayton Oliver – going back-to-back in the club’s Best and Fairest.
Gawn’s leadership qualities shone in 2019, claiming a second Ron Barassi Jnr Trophy, while the loveable character and fan-favourite is also succeeding away from the football field, with some personal businesses flying as well.
