WHITEMORE LOCAL, William French, was the envy of all kids after winning the most coveted prize in NAB AFL Auskick, a nomination for ‘NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year’.

French, 6, will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to present a Premiership medal to an AFL player from the winning team on Grand Final day in the middle of the MCG.

He will join 21 other lucky NAB AFL Auskickers in Melbourne for an unforgettable experience that will also include walking in the 2015 Toyota AFL Grand Final Parade and playing on the hallowed turf of the MCG on the day of football’s Holy Grail.

It only gets better for William. He is now in the running to win $5000 in a NAB Reward Saver account, plus have Geelong Captain and superstar, Joel Selwood, as his personal footy mentor in 2016.

Joel Selwood, said the competition was every kids dream and encourages all Auskickers from around the country to enter in 2015.

William is hoping to see his favourite team, West Coast, play on the biggest stage of all and cannot wait to rub shoulders with the stars of the game.
