Congratulations to Jeremy Cameron, forward with AFL team Greater Western Sydney, who has secured the GWS forward the 2019 Coleman Medal with a career-best nine goals in his 150th AFL match last weekend . The Giants’ 20.7 (127) to 7.13 (55) win over Gold Coast on Saturday night at Metricon Stadium means that he ends the regular season with 67 majors.
Only a remarkable display by Richmond’s Tom Lynch (53) or Brisbane’s Charlie Cameron (52) at the MCG on Sunday next can deny Jeremy the honour.
Jeremy Cameron arrived at the GIANTS from the tiny town of Dartmoor in Victoria at the age of 17 as an underage recruit. Cameron didn’t begin playing football until the age of 16 but burst on to the AFL scene, making his debut in round one, 2012 and finishing his first year as the GIANTS’ leading goal-kicker.
2013 saw Jeremy finish third in the Coleman Medal, become the first GIANT to be named in the All-Australian team and win the Kevin Sheedy Medal as the GIANTS’ club champion.
Jeremy Cameron has been the club’s leading goal kicker in every season since 2012. Off-field Jeremy is a keen fisherman and enjoys camping and hunting with his country teammates.
