A pair of former North Ballarat Rebels Rebels teammates have topped their respective AFL club's best and fairest counts.
Adelaide's Brad Crouch took home the Crows' Malcolm Blight medal while St Kilda's Sebastian Ross won the Saints' Trevor Barker award.
It was the first time Crouch had secured the award, having been rewarded for an elite season which saw the 25-year-old average over 30 disposals and kick 11 goals. Crouch's brother Matt finished fourth in the count.
For Ross, it was the second time the mid-fielder had won the award, backing up his efforts from 2017. Fellow past Rebel Rowan Marshall finished second in the vote count.
On a somber evening which saw the club honour Bungaree native Danny Frawley, Ross reflected on his time with 'Spud'.
"Tonight's not about me, I think the night and rightly so has to be about Danny and what he brought to the footy club and the whole footy fraternity," Ross said.
"He's extended his olive branch a long way and he's influenced so many lives and he'll be sorely missed by many of us and he'll leave an everlasting impression on all of us."
Ross, who averaged 26 disposals this year, captained 17 matches in the absence of injured skipper Jarryn Geary.
See which other former Rebels finished in the top 10 of their vote counts.
Brisbane: Hugh McCluggage (third), Collingwood: Jordan Roughead (tenth), Fremantle: Darcy Tucker (tenth), Greater Western Sydney: Jeremy Cameron (second), Jacob Hopper (third), Richmond: David Astbury (ninth), Daniel Rioli (tenth).
