The 2020 Doig Medal Presentation Dinner will be held on Thursday 22 October, streamed live from the Grand Ballroom at Crown Perth.

While the presentation of the Doig Medal will highlight the evening, Fremantle will also acknowledge the club’s best up and coming player with the Beacon Award.

Previous winners of the Beacon Award include Scott Chisholm, Paul Hasleby, Stephen Hill, David Mundy, Alex Pearce and Luke Ryan.

The award uses similar eligibility criteria as the AFL’s rising star award. Players need to have played less than 10 games at the start of the season, however there is no restriction on age.

Caleb Serong
Debut: Round 4, 2020 v Gold Coast
2020 games: 14
Highlight game: There were a number of strong performances in 2020 from the NAB AFL Rising Star winner but his shutdown role on Patrick Dangerfield while collecting 22 disposals, seven tackles and a goal against Geelong would have to be the standout.

Sam Sturt
Debut: Round 1, 2020 v Essendon
2020 games: 3
Highlight game: Sam Sturt provided one of the more memorable performances on debut with three goals against Essendon in round one. The then 19-year-old kicked one goal from outside 50m near the boundary and kicked another after out-muscling two opponents to mark in front of goal.

Tobe Watson
Debut: Round 8, 2020 v Geelong
2020 games: 3
Highlight game: Watson worked in seamlessly with Freo’s defence and was particularly impactful in round 17 against North Melbourne where he stood tall down back with seven marks.

Hayden Young
Debut: Round 2, 2020 v Brisbane
2020 games: 5
Highlight game: Dominated the highlight reel in round four against Gold Coast with a number of strong marks down back. Set up a goal after he won a one-on-one near defensive 50 and hit Michael Walters with a perfectly weighted kick inside 50.
