AFL – Hawthorn champion Shaun Burgoyne (pictured) has been rewarded for his remarkable career and will be made a life member of the AFL.

Burgoyne goes into the 2016 season having played 295 games for Port Adelaide and Hawthorn and is determined to win another flag to add to his four premiership victories.

After 15 years of footy at the top level, 33 year old Kokatha Mula man Burgoyne says both he and the Hawthorn footy club still have plenty to play for when the season rolls around again
