In his first full season of AFL ‘the blonde flyer’ took the competition by storm by dominating displays at both ends of the ground. At 19 years of age he was a decisive victor of the NAB AFL Rising Star Award and also topped off the season winning the St Kilda Best and Fairest (Trevor Barker Medal), the youngest winner of the award since Trevor Barker in 1976.
In 2003 he again managed 22 games and was shifted into a more forward role, booting 30 goals in a promising year for the Club. Bearing the fruits of 2003, the Club has taken a gigantic leap this season. 2004 saw Riewoldt once again show why he is the one to watch, taking a league high 226 marks and kicking 60 goals leading the Saints to their first finals appearance since 1997. His superb 2004 season was rewarded with All Australian Selection, and he was awarded AFLPA MVP and the St Kilda Best and Fairest. He has continued this rich form throughout his career and is looking to add the ultimate prize to his growing list of achievements in 2009, a premiership medallion.
Riewoldt is the man to lead St Kilda into its most important era in its history.
He has leadership appeal… ON & OFF THE FIELD!
Nick Riewoldt has made a name for himself in the media, proving he can match it up with the intellectuals of AFL football.
He has made numerous appearances on the Thursday night Footy Show and along with Nathan Brown, Peter Everitt and Hall of Fame Jason Dunstall, hosted a weekly radio program on Triple M called ‘The Gospel’.
