Tom the Top Gridiron Rookie

College student Tom Troeth has been awarded the 2018 Rookie of the Year for the Gridiron Victoria Colts League.

Tom, who's studying Year 10 at College, has had a strong season as quarterback for the Geelong Buccaneers, earning him the GV Rookie of the Year award. The Colts competition comprises five teams from Melbourne and one from Geelong.

Tom's award is made even more special by the fact that this is his first season playing gridiron. Playing a very scrutinised position, he has stood up to the pounding by larger opposition. He also provides plenty of sideline energy and said he would use the award as motivation to help the team improve further.
