Northam product Ian 'Bobby' Hill is set to continue to make his mark in the AFL, signing a two-year contract extension with the GWS Giants.
The 19-year-old made his debut in round 17, playing seven games for the side in the home and away season.
Hill kicked seven goals and averaged 10.1 disposals per game.
The number 24 draft pick told the club he was excited to put pen to paper.
"It was a dream come true just getting drafted but once you put the guernsey on it's something different," Hill said.
"I'm doing it for myself, my family and the GIANTS fans out there; I'm loving it.
"When I was a bit younger, I was the only kid in Northam walking around with a GIANTS kit on.
"To play for them is a dream come true and to be building a culture here, you build it really, really quick with guys like Toby Greene, Jeremy Cameron and Zac Williams around."
Giants list manager Jason McCartney said the club was pleased to extend Hill's time at the club.
"We're very happy with how well Bobby has settled in and we're really impressed with what he's achieved in his first season at AFL level," McCartney said.
"To make his debut in his first season after overcoming pre-season shoulder surgery demonstrated great work ethic and attention to detail.
"His growth both on and off the field this year has been evident to all and we're excited by what the future holds for Bobby."
