North Adelaide midfielder Harrison Magor has scooped the pool after winning the 2019 Torrens University MVP Award.
Already earning top billing in the Under-18 McCallum-Tomkins Medal count, Magor’s stunning season was rewarded with selection as the Torrens University Most Valuable Player.
Originally from Ports Football Club in Port Pirie, Magor averaged more than 28 disposals and seven clearances while also displaying the defensive side to his game with eight tackles per match.
A member of the Torrens University SA U18 team, Magor featured in all four games at the 2019 AFL National Championships playing predominantly as a rebounding defender.
The 18-year-old, who was named in North Adelaide’s best players in 10 of his 11 matches this season, earned his nomination in Round 2 after chalking up 33 disposals, seven marks and six clearances against West Adelaide.
Magor joins Liam Jacka, who claimed honours in 2013, as just the second Rooster to win the Torrens University Cup MVP Award.
Introduced in 2009, the MVP Award is presented to the best performing player in the Under-18 Torrens University Cup Competition.
One player is nominated for the Award each round throughout the home-and-away season, with the overall winner selected by a panel of judges chaired by SANFL State Talent Manager Brenton Phillips.
Courtesy of Torrens University, Magor – who measures in at 183cm and 83kg – receives $1000 and a trophy.
“Torrens University Australia is proud to be supporting SA’s elite Under 18 football competition,” said Torrens University’s Professor Justin Beilby.
“Just as this competition provides aspiring South Australian footballers with a launching pad to AFL or SANFL League football, we’re also providing a pathway for students to learn the business of sport and pursue their dreams with leading qualifications in sports management and industry.”
