Posted on - Old Carey, Latest News, Premier, Featured

The VAFA congratulates Old Carey’s Ben Jepson who has been named the Round 16 Men’s Rising Star after his 22 disposal performance in the Panthers 21-point loss to De La Salle on Saturday.

What the club said:

“Ben’s playing career at Old Carey began in 2018 when he played a couple of U19 games as a 16 year old. This was his senior debut after having an outstanding APS season.”

“Ben plays like Brad Sheppard from West Coast Eagles; excellent foot skills and decision making which makes for a super rebounding defender. Ben also has a strong intercept marking ability, and a real commitment to the defensive side of the game.”

“Benny is a really well rounded young man, and his footy is better as a result of his character.”
