Martin became the first player to win a Brownlow Medal, premiership and Norm Smith Medal in a single season. He then capped off his season by winning the Gary Ayres Award as the best player in that year's finals series, along with his second Jack Dyer Medal.Dustin Martin remains an all-time favourite with fans, a quiet achiever who is committed to playing football at the highest level.
