Dayne Beams: 3AW player of the year
Collingwood midfielder Dayne Beams has won the 3AW player of the year.
The 22-year old is enjoying a breakout campaign, averaging 31 possessions a game along with best-on-ground performances against Adelaide, West Coast and Sydney.
Beams polled 30 votes from 3AW Football commentators, four ahead of Essendon's Jobe Watson, Gold Coast's Gary Ablett and Hawthorn's Sam Mitchell.
Speaking with Tim Lane, Caroline Wilson and Mick Malthouse, Beams thanked 3AW for the award and attributed his success to having more opportunity then previous years.
"I've never had any doubts in my ability as a footballer, but this year I've had more opportunity than others and I've really enjoyed it," he said.
As for the Brownlow, Beams was hesitant to throw his name in the mix.
"It's not in my mind at all, I reckon I'm a low chance. Right now I've got finals on my mind. All those individual accolades will take care of themselves," he said.
In conjunction with the award, Beams also won $10,000, courtesy of VicSuper.
