A VFL gun touted as the next Michael Gibbons has nominated Myrtleford as his home club.
Three-time Werribee best and fairest Matt Hanson played with Saints' first-year coach Jake Sharp at State level.
"He's one of the best going around in the Victorian State comp and probably in all the States comps," Sharp enthused.
"He's just a contested bull, he's got a fantastic outside game, he's got a massive tank (endurance).
"(Port Adelaide premiership coach and Werribee mentor) Mark Williams says he does all the right things to be drafted and that's going to be his priority to get drafted."
Hanson has been overlooked in the last four AFL drafts.

Former Lavington midfielder Gibbons was also bypassed for years, before he was finally picked up as a rookie by Carlton, where he impressed with three goals in his pre-season debut match.
"I have no doubt if he can go on a list, he'd make it work," Sharp said.
"I don't think I've met anyone quite as dedicated, probably Kurt Aylett is the next one that's that dedicated to his game."
Aylett also played with Sharp as Werribee, although he's now joined Essendon's VFL outfit.
The former Essendon (AFL) and GWS utility has also nominated Myrtleford as his home club but, given their standing, it's highly unlikely the pair will play with the Saints.
However, if the duo suffered injuries, it could mean a short stint in the O and M.
"All the boys that have signed us as their home club have an actual connection to either a player or the town," Sharp said.
"When we do connect with these players, our playing group extends out to them."
Werribee's Matt Munro rounds out the Saints' VFL-listed players.
All VFL players must nominate a home club and there's always the hope the trio could play at Myrtleford.
"I'd love to have all three."
