The Colac Herald has revamped its football coaches’ MVP award for 2022, with Colac Imperials young gun Campbell Scott sitting on top after the opening two rounds.
In the past, coaches have provided 3-2-1 votes for the best three players from the opposition team.
But from 2022, coaches will now provide 5-4-3-2-1 votes for the best five players on the ground, their own players included.
The Herald, with the backing of the coaches, believe the new format will provide a truer reflection of the league’s top player at the end of the year.
Scott received a perfect score of 10 votes – earning the maximum five votes from both coaches – in the Imps’ opening-round win over the Western Eagles, and six votes in his side’s win over Birregurra on Saturday to sit on top of the leaderboard with 16 votes.
