It’s never too early in your career, and never too late in the year to earn a nomination for The Frownlow Medal, as AFL player Josh Worrell can attest.
Worrell waited until the final weeks of voting to throw his hat into the ring for the most prestigious award in Australian sport after being caught drink driving and using a phone. The youngster is in the early stages of his AFL career but is already mixing it with Wife Beaters, alleged rapists and players who were nominated for assault, sleeping with school girls and breaching COVID-19 restrictions this year.
Worrell was caught using his mobile phone while driving, and with an excessive blood alcohol limit while driving in Adelaide recently, while still on his P’s. Worrell has thus earned a Frownlow nomination before playing a first-grade AFL game, proving that winning The Frownlow Medal is what really matters to Australia-based professional footballers.
Josh has been given an Uber account so that he can attend the awards night for The Frownlow Medal and The Frownlow Medal Hall of Fame in just a few weeks time, where he and more than 50 other anxious players will find out who has been chosen as this year’s medallist.
