HORSHAM’S Jett Hopper claimed the Wimmera Football Leagues’s under-14s best and fairest after polling 33 votes at Monday night’s presentation.
Hopper and his Demons side finished third on the ladder.
He claimed the award by just three votes, coming out ahead of Ararat’s Jordan Cox.
Horsham’s Brody Pope finished third on 25 votes.
Hopper said he was not expecting to win the award on the night and that him and teammate Pope played well together this season.
“I wasn’t expecting it and I’m pretty proud,” he said.
“Brody and I worked pretty good and rotated the votes. He was injured half way through the season so it was still a good effort for him to make it to third.”
Hopper, who has also featured in the under-17s, thanked his parents and coaches for helping him have such a successful season on the field.
“I played a couple of games up in the under-17s and that was pretty good fun,” he said.
