Few could have predicted the incredible rise of James Worpel in just his second AFL season. After a promising first year in the brown and gold that saw him make 11 senior appearances and earn a Rising Star nomination, Worpel took things up several notches. Playing every possible game while averaging 26 disposals and five tackles, the youngster's stellar season saw him take home his first Peter Crimmins Medal. The honour makes him Hawthorn's youngest best and fairest since Leigh Matthews in 1971. With close guidance from mentor and midfield coach Sam Mitchell, Worpel is quickly becoming a contested ball-winning bull who can face up against the competition's best. Hawks fans will be eager to see how the now 21-year-old backs up in season 2020.
