Gibson’s 2015 campaign underlined why he is so valuable to the Hawks and why his recruitment from North Melbourne at the end of 2009 was a stroke of genius. He led the Hawks in marks (207) and time on the ground (98.9 per cent) and was in the top five for disposals, uncontested possessions, contested marks and rebound 50s. He won his second best and fairest, first All-Australian selection and played in his third successive flag. Being able to use Gibson as the third man-up and defensive quarterback sets the team up beautifully. Signed a 12-month contract extension, but seems good to go for even longer after that.

Player honours: Best and Fairest 2013, 2015; 2nd best and fairest 2011; All-Australian 2015; All-Australian nominee 2011, 2013; premiership sides 2013, 2014, 2015.
Brownlow Medal: 2015 votes 1; career votes 17.
Previous AFL club: North Melbourne (2006-09: 65 games,
2 goals).
Draft history: 2005 Rookie Draft selection (North Melbourne) No. 7; 2005 rookie elevation (North Melbourne); 2009 NAB AFL Draft traded by North Melbourne for No. 25 (Aaron Black) and No. 41 (Ayden Kennedy).
