Melbourne's teenage sensation Luke Jackson has continued the Demons' golden AFL season by claiming the Rising Star award.
The athletic ruck-forward became Melbourne's third recipient of the honour, after Jesse Hogan (2015) and Jarred Rivers (2004), to poll 51 out of a possible 55 votes.
Jackson finished ahead of GWS midfielder Tom Green (38 votes) and Port Adelaide forward Mitch Georgiades (28).
The 19-year-old earned the maximum five votes from every judge apart from Chris Johnson and Jude Bolton, who went with Green instead.
Jackson was taken at pick three in the 2019 draft, playing six games in 2020 before going to another level with 21 appearances this season as Melbourne finished as minor premier for the first time since 1964.
The East Fremantle product has averaged 12 disposals, nine hitouts and almost three marks in his first two seasons, including 18 goals.
Jackson's Rising Star nomination came in round seven after collecting a career-high 22 possessions in a victory over North Melbourne.
"To see the way Luke has developed over the last 18 months has been a great highlight for me," Demons coach Simon Goodwin said.
"It's a credit to the environment and culture we have built at the football club to give our players the best chance to succeed."
It was not only Jackson to take centre stage for the Demons during the AFL's virtual awards, with star midfielder Clayton Oliver taking out the 2021 AFL Coaches Association award.
Oliver, who is a serious Brownlow Medal contender, polled votes in 17 of the 23 matches this season to finish with 114.
The champion onballer finished ahead of Western Bulldogs captain Marcus Bontempelli and Port Adelaide ace Ollie Wines, who tied for second with 101 votes.
The other coaches' association award was shared by Gold Coast's Noah Anderson and Fremantle gun Caleb Serong.
After Serong edged Anderson for last year's Rising Star, the pair were named as joint winners of the coaches association best young player award.
"From day one at the club Caleb has shown a drive to improve all areas of his game," Dockers coach Justin Longmuir said.
"During the eight-week lockdown in 2020 he went home and trained by himself and he came back a better player."
