Wimmera Whippet and Nhill Tiger Tyson Harris is the Wimmera Regional Sports Assembly’s Sport Star of the Year nominee for July.
Harris earned his nomination after he was selected as an All-Australian at the 2017 AFL National Inclusion Football Carnival where he played for Vic Country.
“It’s good to be named in the Australian side,” he said.
The carnival ran for a week and Vic Country finished the tournament as bronze medallists after defeating host state Queensland.
Vic Country won 11.11 (77) to 2.3 (15).
Harris is the youngest All Australian selected at the inclusion carnival. He played in the midfield, back line and forward line for Vic Country.
“I enjoyed the centre more... because I was around the ball more,” Harris said.
As part of the nomination Harris has won a $50 voucher to the Athlete’s Foot in Horsham.
