Angus Martin is not one to be complacent.
The young footballer was named under-21 player of the year last season and was one of Laharum's best while playing in the Horsham District league.
But, like many young stars in the District league, he decided to test himself with the higher standard of the Wimmera Football League.
Martin signed with the Horsham Saints for 2019. He said the move was important for his development as a footballer.
"I want to be able to prove to myself that I can play at a better standard of football," he said.
"I want to have the confidence in myself that I can be able to make that step up and have an impact."
The now 22-year-old was influential as a key position player for Laharum last season. He was named in the best players 13 times and averaged over a goal a game.
Leaving the side after a long shared history and a successful season, personally, was difficult.
"It was a pretty tough decision and it was hard because I still have a lot of mates there," Martin said.
"I've played all my footy at Laharum. But I needed a fresh start and that move to the Wimmera league is something I wanted to challenge myself with."
Martin chalked up last year's performance to better understanding his role and felt he could handle the pressures of the new league.
"I felt like I sort of worked out my own game last year. It was knowing where I could impact the contest and having confidence in myself to actually to play well on a weekly basis," he said.
"I guess the intensity and the skill are massive differences I need to get used to. I'm hoping I'm ready for it. I feel like I am at training, so I think I can cope with that step up."
Horsham Saints coach Luke Fisher has plans for his new recruit in the forward line.
"He changes our dynamic. We've had, for the two years I've been at the club, no key forwards as such, where we haven't really been able to build a team around them," he said.
"We've had to find goals by sharing the workload and from midfielders resting up in the forward line.
"But with Angus up there, he will really straighten us up by having a focal point and just having a big guy up there creating a contest or bringing it to ground if he doesn't mark it."
