“This is the biggest individual football achievement in our short history,” GIANTS Head Coach Leon Cameron said.
“Jeremy Cameron has had an outstanding season and thoroughly deserves his place alongside the best players in the AFL for 2013.
“He was our leading goal kicker, won the Kevin Sheedy Medal as Club Champion and now has a spot in the All-Australian team which is due recognition for a fantastic young talent.
“The most exciting thing for Jeremy and the GIANTS is there is still a lot of room for improvement and to take his game to another level.”
