On Friday, Daniel, marched alongside fellow Auskickers and the two competing Toyota AFL Grand Final teams through the streets of Melbourne in the traditional Toyota AFL Grand Final Parade.

Grand Final Day was undoubtedly the highlight of the trip when Daniel played NAB AFL Auskick on the MCG in front of 100,000 fans prior to the commencement of the big game.  After the match Daniel, along with the other 21 NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year nominees, presented the Hawthorn players with their 2013 Toyota AFL Premiership Medals.

“It was so exciting to play in front of so many people on the MCG, and getting to present a premiership medal with all my friends and family watching on TV was really cool too,” Daniel said.

Young Daniel’s opportunity to participate in this unforgettable three day Toyota AFL Grand Final experience came to life through NAB’s Auskicker of the Year competition.  This competition exists to reward selected NAB AFL Auskick participants across the country for their teamwork, passion and commitment to the sport.
NAB is dedicated to Footifying Australia and has been genuinely growing the game for the past ten years through support of programs like NAB AFL Auskick. Every year, over 180,000 children participate in NAB AFL Auskick at one of 2,900 centres nationwide.
