Jedd was announced as the national winner at a gala dinner at the MCG last week attended by a number of AFL players including Geelong’s Joel Selwood, West Coast Eagles star Nic Naitanui, Adelaide’s Rising Star Daniel Talia and the Giants Number 1 Draft pick Jonathon Patton.
Jedd, who plays NAB AFL Auskick at the Coolbinia JFC Auskick Centre is an avid Eagles fan who simply loves to play the game. Jedd is described as a selfless team player and is happy to pass the ball to his team mates so they get to share the ball and be a part of the game.
All 22 NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year nominees were presented with their AFL Grand Final Jumpers at the dinner and played on the MCG before the Toyota AFL Grand Final on Saturday, then presented the winning team with their premiership medals.
In addition, as the 2012 NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year, Jedd receives a $5000 junior saver account from NAB and will have Joel Selwood as his football mentor in 2013.
