Dyson Heppell is
shaping to be one of the great modern players of the Australian
Football League. With his silky skills and exceptional pace, Dyson
was taken at pick 8 of the 2010 National Draft by the Essendon
Football Club. Accepting nomination for the NAB AFL Rising Star
Award in his first game in Round 1 2011, Dyson exceeded expectations
in claiming the award at the conclusion of the season, ousting
several other remarkable talents from around the country. In
recognition of his potential and talent, Dyson was nominated into
the Essendon Leadership group in only his third year at the club at
the commencement of the 2013 AFL Season. Dyson has taken his game to
another level in 2014, in a season that saw him achieve several
accolades including being named as Captain of the AFLPA 22Under22
initiative for the second consecutive year and 4th place
in the 2014 AFLPA MVP Award. Shaping as a genuine star of the modern
game, Dyson continues to go from strength to strength and help lead
his club to the ultimate football achievement – the AFL Premiership.
