Port Adelaide’s Robbie Gray has been named player of 2014 by the AFL Coaches’ Association (AFLCA).
The honour was announced at the AFL Coaches Association Awards evening.
Gray received 111 votes to finish ahead of Fremantle’s Nat Fyfe (95) and Sydney’s Josh Kennedy (83)
The 26-year-old polled just 14 votes in the Brownlow Medal count, with Travis Boak (21 votes) gathering the most of all Port Adelaide players.
The AFLCA award is voted on by the 18 AFL coaches on a 5-4-3-2-1 basis after each home-and-away season game.
Gray is the first Port Adelaide player to win the award since Warren Tredrea in 2004.
Gold Coast’s Jaeger O’Meara was named the season’s best young player.
