GEELONG captain Joel Selwood says star forward Jeremy Cameron can elevate his game to an even higher level.
A faultless pre-season thus far has Selwood excited to see what the lethal left-footer can produce in 2022.
Border restrictions have left Cameron largely stranded on the surf coast since the end of last season and Selwood believes he’s benefitting from the extended training run.
“He has been going really well, to be honest,” Selwood says.
“I don’t like singling out at this time of year but he hasn’t missed a session.
“He actually had a really good off-season to where he around here. He loves jumping in the car and jumping over the border and what not but he wasn’t allowed to this year.
“It’s been nice that Jezza’s got a good block of training in and may that continue.”
Cameron ranked fourth in the AFL for goals per game last season but managed only 15 games after two separate absences with hamstring injuries.
Selwood is hoping the freakish talent he’s seen on the training track gets an extended run this season.
“It’s when he’s in your backyard, and you see it day to day and out on the training track, that you really have an appreciation that he can do a lot of things that other players can’t do,” he says.
“He’s an exceptional talent, and I think he’s only just touching the sides on the sort of player he can be.”
