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.
