Maddy Keryk is the recipient of the 2020 ‘Hoops’ Award for her commitment and dedication to the club and her teammates.

Keryk brings the group together with her upbeat approach and friendly demeanour.

In her second season at Geelong, the 25-year-old has become an integral cog in the Cats AFLW side, living the club values in all she does on and off the field.

The former Carlton vice-captain had arguably her best season to date averaging a career-high 12 disposals per game and taking a number of intercept marks at crucial moments in her new role down back.

The ‘Hoops’ award is voted by players, AFLW staff and coaches and is awarded to the player making a values-based contribution to the club, in line with the criteria for the men’s Tom Harley award.
