Each week a player from the Australian Rules Football College Under 19 competition is awarded the Leader Shooting Star of the Week and will receive a Leader Shooting Star certificate and a Sportsmart voucher. Each weekly winner also goes in the running to win the prestigious Leader Shooting Star of the Year Award, which will be announced at the SFNL Awards Dinner on Friday 6th October.
SAM DELOSA (Hallam)
Delosa has been a valuable asset for Hallam in their last three games, being named in the best each time. An athletic ruckman/centre half forward, Delosa has a big leap and loves to entertain the crowd by taking big hangers. The left footer has booted six goals this season, and looms as a player to watch in 2017.
DANIEL STEWART (Dingley)
Daniel has made a solid start to the year and was instrumental in the Dingoes’ away victory over St Kilda City. He put up his hand to take on a massive challenge down back and was their most damaging player against the Saints, alongside Remmi Wood who kicked five goals. The club will continue to work with Daniel on certain aspects of his game as he continues to develop into a powerful utility player.
RYAN KREYMBORG (St Pauls)
For the second time in as many seasons, Kreymborg is the Leader Shooting Star winner for the first round. The 2016 Under 18 Interleague captain was best afield again on Saturday, booting six of St Pauls’ 14 goals in the side’s big win over arch-rivals Bentleigh. As strong as an ox and can win his own ball, Kreymborg further solidified his standing as one of the dominant players in the Under 19 competition.
