“It was such a close count, and I had a pretty slow start, so I thought I was out of it. I [even] texted some friends saying it was all hype, don’t worry.

“So the fact that I actually won is even more surprising.”

“I’m doing a running session and thinking about Erin Phillips, [thinking], ‘Will she give up now? No, she won’t.'”

Bates was one of the favorites to take the award after being named the AFL Coaches Association (AFLCA) Player of the Year, and after a season in which he averaged 21 disposals, 10 contested positions, five clearances and six tackles a game.

Nonetheless, the 26-year-old, who won the count by a single vote over Crow Anne Hatchard, said her victory came as a real shock.
