Mitch Lewis continued to grow into his role as one of the Hawks’ key spearheads in 2021.
With a total of 22 goals for the year, Lewis kicked the most majors during a season in his career to date, slotting two more in comparison to his break-out year in 2019.
Averaging 1.6 goals a game, with an accuracy of 61.1 per cent – up from his career-average of 53.4 per cent - the 22-year-old continued to hone his craft as a key forward in 2021, finishing fourth in the Hawks goal kicking tally.
